Summer is fast approaching, and our eye is on the important topics. What is the true cost of all the time spent away from the classroom? How can we continue to stimulate and inspire bright young minds, in a way that feels fun and exciting to both kids and parents?

Research shows that students that stay actively involved in programs that involve physical and mental health exercises have tended to score higher on standardized tests than those who are not engaged in such activities during the summer break. More than that, studies have revealed that keeping students in such beneficial programs may ultimately affect the likelihood of those students to advance beyond the socioeconomic classes that they were born into.

High Touch High Tech aims to make itself available to any community, organization, or school where there is a need or desire for educational enrichment. We believe that we can be an asset to students learning how to interact with scientific concepts, and that learning can be fun.

Not only is it crucial to keep young minds engaged and learning during time spent away from the classroom, but early involvement in STEM based education is a monumental factor when considering which students will go on to get degrees in STEM related fields. Research finds that students who are interested in STEM fields early on in their education, by 8th grade, are more likely to graduate with a degree in a related field than those who performed highly on tests in STEM fields.

High Touch High Tech puts an emphasis on fun, hands-on methods of learning.  We strive to deliver exciting programs year-round, helping guide a student’s engagement with scientific concepts by way of auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning methods. This allows us to the opportunity to reach the child where they are at, through which ever learning style is most suitable to their naturally preferred learning method.
