Families

Build Something Great Together

Work with your child to develop curiosity about the world, creativity to try new ideas, and perseverance to learn from mistakes.

When children know they can learn anything, they can be anything. We believe that parents and other role models play a critical role in building children's confidence and love for learning new things. Ready to learn alongside your child? Start with Technovation Families, or explore our other design challenges to try what interests you.
