Share the gift of Tech Enrichment

In our STEM school clubs and camps, kids dive into technology, learning how their favorite games, robots and computers work! With lots of choice and guidance, we place kids in the “coder seat” programming games, animations, robots, circuits and more. Collaboration, laughter, inquisitive minds practice how to solve unexpected problems. Along the way, they grow in their confidence creating with technology, and start developing the skills needed in our ever-growing digital world.

Scratch is so cool!  You can make things just the way you want them.

STEM Education for Kids & Teens

TechVenture Kids inspires our youth through engaging, hands-on projects and challenges designed to inspire kids to become Tech Smart and drivers of their Digital Future. Students gain an edge in STEM while learning to create and program (code) games, gadgets, robots and more!

WHY TECHVENTURE KIDS?

  1. Students engage in short flexible projects, with lots of choice and challenges, giving them a chance to enjoy self-directed learning, and accomodate all levels.
  2. Instructors discuss computer concepts through demonstrations, class involvement, and unplugged activities
  3. We encourage a “club” atmosphere where students are encouraged to collaborate and learn from each other

  1. We keep our classes small with Instructor to Student Ratio at a maximum of 1:9, enabling more 1-on-1 time with students
  2. All classes are open to mixed ages and levels, encouraging students to be both learners and teachers
  3. Creating critical 21st century thinkers, our first question to a raised hand: “How did you try to solve the problem?”

Have questions about our classes or what we do?

Have you heard the joke about the Scratch program and a Lego(r) Wedo Kit who meet in an empty class room?

The Wedo Kit says to the Scratch program "Hey, want to use my sensors and motors?" The TechVenture Kids instructor says, "Great idea! We need kids to use this equipment. Let's make our Lego Wedo 2 kits available to local kids to borrow when they sign up for an online, at-home class this Fall!"

In this new online coding class, our Lego Wedo 2 kits will be used by students to create game controllers for Scratch coded games they create AND and to create things that can be controlled by the Scratch code, too!

NEW SESSION STARTS NEXT WEEK! Enroll now!https://techventurekids.org/events/online-scratch-1-intro-to-coding-f20scg3_5/
