Using our unique TechStarsTM curriculum written BY educators FOR educators of preschool students, TechStar teachers prepare the children of today for the academic and technology worlds of tomorrow! Classes of three to four children use discovery and collaborative learning to reinforce STE(A)M concepts, academic readiness skills in reading, math, and science as they work with computers, digital cameras, robots, electronic microscopes and iPads!
Integrated Technology Resource Program
Our curriculum meets and/or exceeds the National Educational Technology Standards and integrates project-based learning into core-curriculum for Kindergarten through 8th grade. Eight technology areas, from basic computer operations to writing HTML and Website design, cover a spectrum of skills defined by our proprietary scope and sequence.
Professional Development Courses
Our curriculum writers, all educators with classroom experience, know what teachers need in order to grow as professionals and to enhance student learning. TechStar courses cross the spectrum from using wikis, blogs and interactive white boards in elementary schools, to setting up an ergonomically correct learning center in a preschool classroom.
After School and Summer Camp Programs
The TechStars umbrella includes the after school and summer camp courses that utilize classroom content of science, math, language arts and social studies to create hands-on projects for extended learning. Some schools opt to offer the courses as part of in-school electives. Courses are updated regularly, and new courses are always in development.
