iTEC spring break camps are a great way to get youth interested in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math through hands-on activities. The instructors at iTEC go beyond the classroom and understand that kids learn more when they are excited about the topics being discovered. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
Additionally, UTSA iTEC will offer robotics training for local educators who are interested in learning how to easily incorporate robotics into their classrooms. iTEC instructors will offer classes on basic to advanced level WEDO and NXT robotics platforms. The cost is $80 per day or $350 for the full week.
Established in 2007, iTEC's mission is to inspire youth by creating an environment where they can understand how science, technology, engineering and math shape our lives and the future of the world. Throughout the year, iTEC hosts camps and competitions for youth, teacher training workshops, and partners with school districts and other educational institutes across San Antonio. UTSA iTEC has built a reputation for offering meaningful, high-quality, safe and exciting educational activities for school-aged children.
