What I appreciate about techno kids is the wonderful support services that are always at the ready. There always seems to be an available “real person” to talk to about product selection and use of the program. Additionally, the cost of the program is reasonable for a teacher’s budget. Finally, the each project engages students in self directed academic rigor that captures their attention and rewards the intellect.
