About Summer Camp: “Just wanted you to know that our summer plans will definitely include KIT! Your programs are part of our year-round schedule – whether it’s an after school group, vacation day, Lego® League or summer class, my son can’t wait to go to BBB! Thanks for offering such a great combination of expertise, fun and learning.”
About a Birthday Party: “The Birthday Party was great! All the children were completely engaged from the time they arrived until it was time to go. They didn’t want to stop for the pizza.”
About After School Group: Throughout the six weeks, the students were involved in meaningful problem solving activities. I was impressed with the instructors’ enthusiasm and rapport with the students. The students were highly motivated to complete the challenging tasks the instructors gave to them. The students had fun, learned how to be better problem solvers,and are still raving about the experience.
This is a great alternative to the kids watching TV at home on break. They got a great introduction into several areas of computer technology. Highly recommend you try it out.
