This is a first-come, first-served program open to children between the ages of 9 and 12 (as of September 30, 2021). The program is designed to accommodate up to 350 children from a geographically diverse area.

To keep up with the costs of providing a quality program (approximately $300 per child), there is a nonrefundable registration fee of $65 per child, payable upon registration. The fee can be paid by check, debit, or credit card. Parents may also apply for a scholarship at the time of registration. Contact Dr. Kristy Collins with any questions. A KTU t-shirt will be given to all registered participants.

Please contact Dr. Kristy Collins for more information about scholarships. On the registration form, make sure the box is checked to apply for the scholarship.

Kids' Tech University costs approximately $300 per child per semester to pay for supplies, meals, and speakers. For this program to continue, we rely on the generous support of our donors. Any contribution is welcome. If you would like to help, please click on the donations button on the right sidebar.

Although we welcome back participants of past programs, we cannot guarantee any child a place until they are registered for the program. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Kids' Tech University strives to actively involve its particpants in learning activities after the KTU events. With this is mind, KTU has created the KTU Virtual Lab where KTU participants are able to continue their learning from home. The KTU Virtual Lab has various online labs and activities to keep kids engaged and motivated to learn about STEM disciplines whenever they would like!

We are sorry but there will not be a make up date. No refunds will be issued.
