KTU Spring 2022 Enrollment 

Kids’ Tech University is a first-come, first-served program that is open to children ages 9 through 12 as of September 30, 2021. This program is open to all children meeting the age requirement, regardless of place of residence or academic achievement, and can accommodate up to 350 participants representing a geographically diverse area.

Program Expectations
When you register your child for Kids' Tech University you are enrolling them to attend ALL FOUR of the program dates. 

Normally, we strive to create a "university feel" that includes children attending an interactive session (lecture) with their peers in a university lecture hall. However, with the current worldwide pandemic (COVID-19) we will be hosting a virtual program utilizing zoom and mailed packets of materials for hands-on activities after the interactive session. Parents are welcome to watch the interactive session with their child and we ask that they assist their child with doing the hands-on activity. For the activity we are mailing home kits that will require minimal if any supplies from the home. Parents may be needed to assist with poking holes and handling sharp utensils.  Undergraduates will be leading a group of kids/parents through the activity--all done virtually!
