TechREACH after school clubs and summer programs help schools involve underrepresented minority and low-income middle school students in technology. TechREACH equips teachers with the proven curriculum and training to generate excitement for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) while building students’ confidence.

TechREACH is a project of the EdLab Group (formerly the Puget Sound Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology).

TechREACH News

The 2010 TechREACH summer program, SeaBots: Dive into Science, was a huge success! Middle school girls attended our one week camp at Edmonds Community College where they used LEGOs, computer programming and basic engineering skills to create Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) that could complete a variety of underwater challenges. They maneuvered their LEGO ROVs around the pool to explore a coral reef and investigate a sunken ship, and met women scientists who actually work with ROVs in their jobs. For more information, visit our page on Summer Programs.

TechREACH Voices

“I learned that no matter what opportunities I may have right now, I can achieve whatever I want. I can be more than I am right now.”
– Ochoa TechREACH student

 

"Our school believes in the program and has benefited from the work of this club in many ways. Our TechREACH club has been written up in the local newspaper as well as the district and school newsletter. It is well advertised and appreciated throughout our district."
– TechREACH club leader
