Technology Classes for Kids

Overview

Vision Tech Camp after school programs are highly engaging and all about having fun while learning after school is over. We offer a variety of programs including robotics, video game design, engineering, Minecraft, and animation as our after school programs. We offer programs both in some of our centers and a select number of schools throughout the Bay Area.

Most of our after school programs start at Kindergarten through middle school. At schools, programs start just after school ends and are mostly of 90-minute duration. Our teachers bring all the required equipment and set up the class before kids arrive.

If you are interested in bringing Vision Tech after school programs to your local school or community centers, please send us an email at [email protected] .

Bring VisionTech to You

VisionTech offers a wide array of exceptional technology programs that are a great benefit to any community location. Our innovative approach to teaching children technology classes and our unmatched mobility allows us to bring technology classes to nearly any location – whether it be your school, parks, and recreation department, or any other location you want to see our programs.

What we offer

We offer a selection of programs tailored to each grade level such as Robotics, Game Design, Animation, Programming, and more.

Our program can be smoothly integrated into an existing enrichment program – we provide all of our equipment and materials; all we need is a room with electrical power. We handle our own setup of our own equipment, and we work hard to provide the level of customer service our parents and students deserve. We also offer an optional registration system if your community does not have the capability to provide online registration for parents.

VisionTech’s programs allow students to learn fundamental skills in technology that will allow them to compete in the modern world, and help them develop core skills that will prepare them for future academic and career success. Our classes are engaging, entertaining, and educational, a combination we believe allows students to better retain knowledge.
