Summer at T.E.C.
Summer is a good time to learn something new in the company of good friends. Hands-on S.T.E.A.M. summer program at T.E.C. exposes students to skill sets that they normally don’t experience at school. Continuing with our philosophy of Think, Explore, Create, students participate in engaging activities which emphasize the iterative engineering design process. Join us for a week or all six.
Summer programs are geared for students in grades K-8 from 9am-3pm. Summer programs are $350 per week, and Before care is available from 8am-9:am at $10 per day. Extended care is also available from 3 until 5 pm at $20 per day.
