Curriculum

Kids N Technology puts the “T” in STEM! It’s the main ingredient of Kids N Technology’s secret sauce! Kids N Technology has developed an integrated, interdisciplinary curriculum that includes science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, which is largely lifestyle driven. Students engage in real-world experiences through critical thinking, creativity, effective collaboration, research skills, and communication.

What Makes Kids N Technology’s Curriculum
Different?

• KNT’s enrichment education challenges and guides through the use of exploration, discovery, and play.
• Our unique and customized approach focuses on learning, not teaching.
• KNT blends divergent thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration to give students the opportunity to engage in activities that develop their learning journey.
• We use technology to address STEM challenges. We incorporate 1:1 technological tools to make learning easier for each individual student.
• Each session includes an authentic assessment of skills, creativity, attitudes,and student participation.
