Meet the Tech-Know Time Team!

Tech-Know Time was established in 2012 by two strong, experienced teachers, dedicated to providing a high quality, fun and unique experience for children in afterschool classes and summer camps.  With great enthusiasm for teaching STEM (science, technology, engineering, & math) through the use of LEGO robotics, we’re ready to deliver another successful program for your child.  We believe that our challenging Tech-Know Time classes and camps provide many opportunities for students to construct and program robotic models, as well as provide a positive place for children to learn and grow.
