About Tech Trek

Drop off your child at The ICM after school for a byte-sized adventure exploring the basics of coding, digital design, and tech-based careers! In this enrichment program, kids will create their own technology-based project from start to finish based on their interests.

Tech Trek goes “beyond the screen” to provide hands-on opportunities to learn. Build a robot and write simple code to help it navigate a maze. Create stop-motion characters and bring them to life. Watch items appear before your eyes in our 3D printer. We’ll use tools like Lego WeDo, Makey Makey invention kits, BeeBot programmable robots, and more to help children learn the basics of computer science and digital media literacy. Our “hands-on, minds-on” approach helps kids learn in many different content areas, with an emphasis on 21st Century skills like collaboration, communication, and creativity.

Skills we’ll explore: basic coding, program development, graphic design, video and photo editing, digital animation, internet safety
