  • Why KidsTek?
    Schools in disadvantaged neighborhoods often have the computer hardware but may lack instructors who can lead a structured program during after school hours.
    Lack of basic computer skills limits opportunity
    In-school technology classes are elective, not a required subject… KidsTek provides another opportunity for students to improve their real-world computer skills.
  • Why KidsTek?
    KidsTek teams with schools to provide a low-cost, efficient way to “Bridge the Digital Divide” through project-based learning!

  • KidsTek Program Tracks
    Elementary-aged students learn that technology is fun and exciting through projects that incorporate basic computer skills.
    Middle school programs strengthen practical computer skills through engaging projects using music, art, video, game design, conceptual design and more.
    High school students develop advanced technology skills in one of these two areas:
    In-school technical certification courses (Cisco Systems, Sun Microsystems) providing skills to be successful in the workplace or to prepare students for a technical college education.
    College and career exploration courses, allowing students to leverage technology to explore higher education opportunities and the college application process, as well as how to research and prepare for various career paths.
