Recently, HTHT franchisees came from all over and descended on Asheville, North Carolina. The occasion was the Reaching new Heights 2010 Franchise Conference held at the Renaissance hotel in Asheville August 26-29, 2010. Some franchisees traveled great distances from their home territories. Some came from Seoul, South Korea, Vancouver, Canada, Chicago, Houston, Boston, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina. Fun and camaraderie was on the agenda, as well as delicious food, blue grass music, and our very own HTHT drumming circle. We also learned a great deal about social media, our web site, and search engine efficiencies from our local webmaster and expert Allen Porter from Quasi Suave Digital. Most of all all franchisees loved learning from each other. We are a great group!
Our very own Daniel Shaw, National Program Director of High Touch High Tech, conducted an exciting science workshop for local teachers. This workshop took place at the Western Regional Early Childhood Education Conference Sponsored by Channels for Child Care Advancement and Buncombe County Child Care Services in Asheville, NC.
It was so well received that High Touch High Tech was invited back to participate in the conference next year. Here’s what some of the workshop participants had to say about their hands-on science experience…..
“Great! I never cared for biology but loved this”
“I like the hands-on learning to make science fun and interesting for children. Great energy and good ideas.”
“Loved the hands-on activities and experiments – thought Dinosaur Dan was very enjoyable.”
“Fun and energetic. *Really nice and helpful.* Very interesting and entertaining.”

During a recent Super Science birthday party provided by Biology Brad from High Touch High Tech of the San Francisco Bay Area, birthday boy Joe erupted a volcano that went sky high! The birthday party took place in Concord, CA and the volcano erupted 6 feet high – twice the height of the birthday boy!
“It was great to see the children having such a great time without having to run around like maniacs!! Everyone was raving about you after you left………I think it was nice for the parents to see their kids actually doing something constructive at a party, I am so glad I found your website and booked you up!!! Joe got lots of really good presents today but the only one that has kept his interest all day is the one you gave him, he is fascinated by it and has shown everybody who has come to the house today.” Mrs. Nicola Bell (parent of birthday child).
High Touch High Tech birthday parties provide 75-minutes of non-stop hands-on science fun for the birthday child and friends. All parties consist of hands-on experiments for all children, a science certificate for each child and a fun science gift for the birthday child.

“I recently visited Springfield Elementary School in Fort Mill, SC to offer our “Get Buggy” program. Knowing that I was going to be learning with fourth graders, I wanted to be able to show them how safe and friendly some insects can be with a little pizzazz. I did this in hopes of easing a child’s nerves around “gross bugs!” Therefore, I took “Roachy,” one of our favorite Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches and asked him to walk across my cheek. Luckily for me they only want to eat fruits, and vegetables, not faces! Even some of the children offered to try by the end of the program!”
