About Tech EdVentures

one on one support of each student is part of our culture

Tech EdVentures was created in Silicon Valley by Dr. Allen Selis, a visionary educator who is guided by the belief that engineering,design and coding skills are so important that kids should learn them in elementary school.

What makes us different?

  • We tackle real challenges.  From wiring sensors to writing HTML code, Tech EdVentures asks kids to solve real-world problems using the same tools as professionals. 
  • We set high standards.  Robotics in Kindergarten? Python for third graders? Tech EdVentures lifts students up to meet their potential by setting
    consistently high standards for all.
  • We support great learning. Small classes, carefully chosen staff and a
    commitment to mentoring students make Tech EdVentures the place where young inventors thrive.
