TECH CORPS is an AMAZING organization that offered our daughter an opportunity of a lifetime. The programs that she was elected to attend in were very well structured, organized, and professionally ran by the staff of TECH CORPS. My daughter walked away from these programs with a welt of knowledge that she was able to apply during her academic school year. In addition, she was able to apply her learnings from Techie Camp outside of the classroom and into her acting. I can't say enough about how phenomenal TECH Corps is in a paragraph. The skills and exposure that she obtained through TECH Corps should be offered more frequently and we wish that we could have had a summer long program with this type of curriculum versus a weeklong. We all walked away from the program wishing we had more time!!!!!!! TECH CORPS your organization is AWESOME and the flexibility of the staff was very impressive!

Tech Corps is a great organization to work with, with a excellent idea well-executed. I think this is a very good way to get grade-schoolers interested in technology and further their education.

Plus, I had a great time. This is my second year, and both were rewarding and fun.

Thanks, Tech Corps, and, keep up the good work!

For the years that I have been involved I have watched the students light up with enthusiasm and excitement for STEM related lessons.
The volunteers and staff members all give many hours a week to building interesting and engaging activities for the kids with the dual goals of educating and building desire to continue with technical exploration.

Wonderful organization that offers opportunity to students and exposure to new innovations that they would not otherwise have. It is very well organized and offers students the ability to realize the technical capability and creative capability they have. The curriculum is flexible but also allows for the kind of structure you need to implement something with minimal prep work.

Tech Corps did a nice job of offering many different selections of summer courses to our students in Lorain County. They were professional in handling the student application process and communication with parents. I'm looking forward to more opportunities with them in the future.

I had a wonderful opportunity to work with TECH CORPS this summer and it was the greatest way to spend my time. It prepared me for my (hopeful) future career and with my presentation skills. I'd recommend this to anyone interested in STEM careers

My son really enjoyed the Tech Corp Program. It helped him confirm as to what he wanted to go to college for. He took part in the Summer Internship program with Tech Corp. With the hands on experience with REAL world issues when regarding programming, helped him to narrow down what field he wants to study. His choice is with Computer Forensic Science with a minor in Criminology. All because of this program. I love it and recommend that more students become a part of it.

My son was also amazed how he became a part of the review in the Columbus Dispatch Paper over the summer.

Tech Corps' mission is an important one, becoming increasingly important in our more technology-based world. The organization's lean staff is committed and creative, developing strategic partnerships that serve to advance and expand the work. One of the organization's unique strengths is its effective use of professional volunteers from the various tech industries.

Tech Corps put on a Techie Camp at our University last summer. The process was very easy and, for the most part, smooth. The experience was enjoyed by all participants and we look forward to hosting more Tech Corps-run camps in the future!

I am so glad I was given the opportunity to get involved with TECH CORPS this past summer. This past summer I was a site coordinator for one of the sites for the Student Web Corps Program and I’m currently an instructor for Techie Club. What I really enjoy about this program is their passion to give students and kids the opportunity to learn about the technology industry in a fun and hands on way! The best part about volunteering is seeing the students initially having little to no knowledge about technology and then seeing them by the end of the program wanting to learn more and even some wanting to pursue a career out of it! TECH CORPS is Fantastic!
