In our Tech-Class, students are offered an introduction to the ground-breaking technology they will need to thrive in an increasingly competitive and exciting world. Our belief is that the faster children can become acquainted with technology in a structured and directed manner, the more they will be able to flourish with it. In our classes, we endeavor to turn toys into tools as we teach the students what technology is and how it operates in their daily lives. We work with everything from Drones to Virtual Reality to 3-D Printers and even build our own APPS! Our pupils are hands on, learning what the machines can do in a fun and structured manner.
