Jason, Brisbane, Kedron State High School


I used TechnoWonderland for a Technology Sampler course for high school freshman and it worked out great! They got to sample all aspects of Office and had fun creating their own document and getting creative!

Karen Young, Londonderry, NH, Londonderry High School


Amazing resource, fantastic value for money and so detailed. Was overjoyed with my purchase and the children really enjoyed it.

I'm excited to get going with this project!

T. Slaughter, Columbus, Ohio, South HS 7-12


My students really enjoyed this project! They loved being able to create their own theme park and I loved all the different activities we did using all types of programs. Techno Wonderland was very easy to follow and implement in my classroom. I highly recommend it!

Maureen N, Little Egg Harbor, NJ, Pinelands Regional School District


Review: I am using this curriculum with one student who is on the Autism Spectrum. His primary interest is in Theme Parks, so we chose the TechnoWonderland curriculum. The curriculum is great, although we are modifying it to meet his needs (less detail).

J. Steinberg, Lexington, MA, Institute for Learning and Development


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.

I am thrilled with the Guide and Student Workbook. Hats off to the curriculum writer who did this program. Very complete and comprehensive. Extremely well thought out and put together. The students are going to love it and will definitely learn some beneficial skills.
