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 rainforst to study how to complete scientific and discovery expeditions to Earth's various rainforest regions. 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.
Participants entering grades 3 - 5 will complete activities in each of the following four learning areas. Boy and Girl Scouts can apply what they learn towards advancements or Adventures.
Participants entering grades 6 - 9 can pick two classes listed below. Boy and Girl Scouts can apply what they learn towards advancements or Merit Badges. Please note, classes will cover some of the badge requires but not all of them. Boy and Girl Scouts will have the opportunity to work with badge counselors during lunch time and after school time if they want to work towards a completion on the badge.
