The Kids-N-Tech Club engages elementary and middle school students ages 8 – 14, in innovative STEM enrichment activities. The Kids-N-Tech Club welcomes students who love technology, has STEM career inspirations, loves to compete, or just want to have fun learning technology!
Our Kids-N-Tech Club gurus gather on the third Saturdays of each month to learn and enhance their tech know-how! Each month brings a different level of tech fun! Students work individually or as a team in Robotics, Gaming, Coding, 3D Printing, Engineering, Digital Photography, Website Design, 3D Printing, and all the IT they can get! The Kids-N-Tech Club takes students tech skills to the next level. Students have the option to take their talents to the world by competing in local, state, national, and international Competitions.
The Kids-N-Tech Club prepares and provides students an opportunity to compete in exciting STEM competitions, including the Verizon Innovative App Challenge (win as much as $15,000) and the PBS-WTVI STEM Awards. Expert judging by technology educators and industry representatives inspires the best from participants. Team rewards include monies, gift cards, medals, and/or trophies. However, rewards and rules vary according to the competition. Parents and professionals are welcome to get involved by volunteering, donating, or fundraising.
We believe that the best benefit of being a “Kid-N-Technology” is the inspiration, enthusiasm, knowledge, and advanced skills that students gain by engaging in the Kids-N-Tech Club. The “big bang” is the recognition that our young techies receive for applying their knowledge. Participating in extracurricular activities has always been important, however, today students need to gain the necessary skills to compete in the 21st Century, therefore it should be mandatory.
