Choose Between Two Options
- $69 for four weeks of after-school technology classes for one kid (up to a $189 value, including the registration fee)
- $135 for the above for two kids (up to a $354 value, including the registration fee)
After-school classes cover technology-based subjects such as robotics, game design, digital art, animation, and movie making, with sessions available for elementary, middle, and high school kids. For younger children, Intro to Robotics utilizes programmed Lego robots (ages 6–8), while teen instruction includes graphic design, concept art, and 3D modeling (ages 12–18). Classes meet once a week and last from 45 to 75 minutes.
Arts and Technology Institute
The Arts and Technology Institute readies kids for the digital age by equipping them with multimedia skills during hands-on, project-based classes that encourage creative thinking. During the encouraging lessons, a highly qualified instructor shows children ages 6–15 how to program games to play on an Xbox or computer, navigate 3-D modeling software, and design and build robots they can swap in for younger siblings. Whether they’re making a movie or creating digital art, students learn to problem solve, work as a team, and think outside the box. In addition to regularly scheduled course, ATI invites youth into afterschool and homeschool programs, and welcomes older pupils into a continuing-education program that can supplement art and technology learning at the high-school and college levels.
