What We Teach
TechLab introduces kids to products, technology and programming to help them dream big.
For many kids, technology is just playing games on a phone or tablet. We want kids to think bigger.
Working alongside faculty from Anderson High School and across Austin Independent School District, we supply the latest tech and tech-art tools in an educational and safe yet fun and informal environment where campers can develop a passion for using technology to create and learn.
Each year, our camp will ask children to pretend to be scientists trying to solve a challenge. This year, campers will pretend to go out to the cave to study how to complete scientific and discovery expeditions to Earth's various caves. While doing so, kids won't hear a lecture; they will ask the questions and they will use their imagination (and our tools) to find the answers.
