Parents' Comments

  • My daughter has a kind of a character that gets easily warmed up but just as easily cooled down. But she is still trying what she had learned at TECH PARK at home even as the new school year has started. I am very grateful to TECH PARK, who set her heart on fire!!
  • As always, my son is very much satisfied. It seems he's inspired by other kids creating various things. Than you.
