More than 17 years ago, Anita Khurana, was inspired to find a better way for children to engage with technology. As a robotics coach, she saw a troubling trend in technology education in young kids – a serious disconnect between consuming technology and creating it. In 2000, while being a robotics coach, she came to the realization that kids in her robotics teams were struggling to create digital content for their robotics tournament. Anita set out on a mission to find an approach that would provide with a strong foundation at an early age by incorporating fun tech tools to keep students engaged and excited.
Inspired by a parent on the team, she went out to offer after school programs to the San Ramon Valley Unified School District, starting with a single program – robotics – at Green Valley Elementary School. After the program’s stunning success, she began offering both after school programs and summer programs in schools and community centers, eventually creating Vision Tech Camps as we know it now. We have painstaking developed and assembled our methods, curriculum, and the teaching material to create Vision Tech’s summer programs.
Since then, we have opened our own summer camp and after school centers in San Francisco Bay Area locations in Danville, Saratoga, and we are planning to open two more in Berkeley, and Palo Alto. As we continue to grow, we never forget why we started Vision Tech – and our mission to bring our technology programs to every child.
