My daughter can be quick to start then drop new activities, but she’s still doing the things she's learned at TECH PARK at home even now that the new school year has started. I'm so grateful to TECH PARK for lighting that fire in my daughter!
As always, my son is very satisfied with TECH PARK. He seems inspired by all the different projects the other children make. Thank you.
My child started with zero experience with computers, but they've gained new skills with each lesson. Having pros teach the lessons is wonderful, and my child loves interacting with their teachers.
