FUNDAMENTAL TECHNOLOGY & STRATEGIC CAREER PREPARATION
Technology is all about working smarter, not harder. From the invention of the wheel to the first computer, technology allows people to do more things faster and more reliably. All of our sessions revolve around the science and technology of graphic design, building electronics, programming computers, producing music, aviation, and the logical skills of chess that helps put it all together.

CUSTOMIZED FOR YOUR ORGANIZATIONS' NEEDS
One size solutions often fit poorly - if at all. To best accommodate the wide range of students we serve, we work closely with our partners to create a learning environment best suited for their student body. We offer three session types for our on-site programs: in-class, after school, and specials.
A popular option for our charter and private school partners in which our project coordinators works with school administration to fulfill or augment established STEM objectives with TECHNOFRO curriculum. Student enrichment usually occurs within normal class periods.
This option provides extra-curricular training in which students select distinct paths based on their individual interests.
Our TECHUPS (Tech Pop-Ups) are self-contained, 2-to-3 hour sessions in which students are introduced to various technology pursuits - usually - via hands-on projects they can showcase to peers and parents.
PROFESSIONALLY SUPERVISED, YOUTH LED TRAINING.
Teaching is the art of relating, not just repeating - and who better to relate to the students we serve than their peers. Our junior mentors (aged 13 to 17) learn essential communication, people, organization, and leadership skills - while picking up technology abilities that grab the attention of colleges and employers alike.
