Tech Camps For Kids

27 May

Looking to get your child in a tech camp? Have you checked out Classroom Antics? It was established to address the rising demand for STEM-based childhood education. Today children are more comfortable with video games than board games, and more likely to read books on a smart device than in paperback. How do we prepare our children to use and, better yet, invent tomorrow’s technological or scientific advancement? Sign up them for a tech camp! You can choose from classes like LEGO Robotics to Video Production.
