ENCOURAGING CREATIVITY 

Children interact with technology in an inquiry-based manner. Children are encouraged to troubleshoot, ask questions, take risks, and make mistakes.  Kids build vital soft skills, as they collaborate, plan, and refine their projects in a program that encourages exploration.
