We are pleased to announce that a SciTech Kid was a winner in Disney's Create Tomorrowland XPRIZE Challenge.
Congratulations to Gabrielle Nafie whose drawing of a Bee Origamiibot won in the 8 to 12 year old division. Gabrielle will receive $3,000, a 3D printer, tickets to see the Tomorrowland movie, and a video camera to keep a video diary of her mentor experience with a STEM expert. In June, she'll begin a mentorship program, where she's be paired up with an amazing trailblazer who is shaping the future now. To see the official announcement, click here.
We also want to congratulate and thank all of our SciTech Kids who submitted their wonderful ideas. Miles Pilchik, Elliot Ruo, Haven Tinsley, Scott Tinsley and Jack Duchey, all shared their creativity and awesome ideas and had a part in creating a better tomorrow. They are all winners in our eyes.
SciTech Kids is excited about our new afterschool and weekend workshops this spring. Children will learn Robotics, How to Design a Video Game, Minecraft Mod, Wearable Technology and 3D printing. If your kids are obsessed with Minecraft, enhance their experience by having them learn Java as they modify the game. Or have them use electronics to light up clothing or create interactive games. These classes are a great way to bring their technology skills to another level.

SciTech Kids nurtures children's sense of wonder and excitement about STEAM (science, technology, engineering and math + the Arts), by encouraging them to explore its limitless applications through hands-on activities which unlock their imagination. We spark children's innate curiosity and creativity through experimentation and fun, meaningful experiences. Working alongside real scientists, our kids, ages 3 to 15, are involved in authentic scientific inquiry that changes both the way they see themselves and the world.

Imagine a world in which children, wearing lab coats and safety goggles, conduct a science experiment, and explore the mysteries of the body by dissecting a frog and playing detective at a crime scene.Learn More
What sets SciTech Kids apart is that our kids think like scientists. They learn science and scientific concepts by "doing science" that is connected to their everyday life, rather than watching someone else do it.Learn More
