It’s on!

We have just launched our new systems, new site, new locations and new courses for 2011. So, what do we do in the off season?  We work 24/7, getting all the details in order for the next season. 2011 is going to be an amazing year…we hope you agree.

I am very proud of our team.  Nobody tries harder, or cares more.  When we say we are the World’s #1 Tech Camp, we are not only referring to size.  We are also referring to our big ideas.  Every kid, every teen, should have access to technology.  And there has never been a better–or more important–time to engage in STEM skill development (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). We invite you to check out our site.  Call us with any questions at 1-888-709-TECH (8324), or 408-871-2227, option 1 for international calls.
