Making Science & Technology Fun
Techsploration programs are designed to introduce students to technology, science, and problem solving in a fun and exciting way.
Techsploration uses a wide variety of methods – huge props, slides, juggling, and even balloon tying – mixed with lots of humor, to teach technological and scientific concepts. In addition to being fun, the activities are highly educational. They reinforce the school’s curriculum, illustrate how concepts are applied to real life situations, and incorporate state standards.
