Kids’ Tech University 2011

Children are full of “why” questions about the world.  The goal of Kids’ Tech University (KTU) is to explore questions that will spark kids’ interests and excitement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.” – http://kidstechuniversityorg

    I have taken my children to KTU at Virginia Tech for two years; to say this is a fabulous program would be a complete understatement. The speakers are renowned experts in their fields, the events are extremely well coordinated/planned/organized, and the “college experience” for the children is fabulous! If you live within driving distance, you should register your children and plan to attend (parents can view the lectures from another location via live stream)! Absolutely life changing events for every member of the family! I hope to see you there!
