YAY! #1 STEM Summer Camp Provider

2017TECHSummerCampsDenver

 

Really proud to announce that we have been recognized as the #1 “STEM Camps” provider and winner of the Colorado Parent Magazine Family Favorite award for 2017. For the second year in a row, we were included in the “Lessons and Camps” category, and was among a select group of STEM education providers.

Colorado Parent Magazine describes a Family Favorite as meeting a set of standards and key criteria including: great value, family-friendly atmosphere, fun for all ages, a trusted resource and superior customer service. Family Favorites, however, go beyond the expected selection criteria in that the recognized programs are compiled from the readers and parents, the greatest judge of all, who have the first-hand experience when choosing an after-school or summer camp program.

Our primary focus for our STEM programs is to provide the highest level of technical training available in the state, and to do so in a fun summer camp format. The students are having a blast while learning 21st century skills. Thanks to all of our parents, students and friends who support us every day!
