As technology becomes more and more entrenched in our world, our kids need to be prepared.
Matt Bowman and Derek Miner from Tech Trep Academy are telling us about the program that is an affordable, interactive online learning community for youth, ages 8-15, focused on teaching real-world skills in TECHnology and enTREPreneurship.
Tech Trep Academy offers a variety of courses on topics like computer and game programming, Minecraft modding with Java, 3D printing, digital art/animation, sound mixing, media editing, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and more.
Tech Trep Academy allows everyone to move through the course at their own pace, then get help from a mentor when they have questions. And in the spring and fall, students get to highlight their work at a Showcase Event.
Tech Trep Academy has partnered with NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young, and his Forever Young Foundation to help kids all over the world get access to these programs.
