Announcing TECH PARK’s 2017 Summer School program for
Kindergarten through 6th graders from July 24th–August 26th!

Feature #1Even newcomers can enjoy TECH PARK’s one-of-a-kind curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of every child, even those who have never used computers or tools. From basics like typing and using mice, children can soon create digital art, program games, and edit original videos. Beyond computers, children also get hands-on building robots, creating intricate string art, and more. With activities split for upper and lower grade students, everyone can work, play, and learn at their own pace.

Feature #2Taught by programmers and creators working at the forefront of tech

Expert programmers and creators from our Google-partnered company have evaluated all kinds of teaching materials and programming languages to create the Summer School curriculum. Additional equipment and teaching materials are provided by sponsors like the Tenjin Sony Store, robotics and electronics company Elekit, and film companies KOO-KI and Mont Blanc Pictures.

Feature #3Flexible scheduling lets you choose your own adventure

Going on a family trip or busy with other club activities? No problem. Sign up for one day or the entire schedule–it’s up to you! Each day’s curriculum is self-contained, so you can choose activities that interest you without worry.
