I am a middle school science teacher and have also taught Computer Classes. This year, I am teaching Computer Science for the first time. I could not be doing this class without the help and direction by Learningtech.org. I appreciate the expertise and direction provided by Dr. Miller and his team. The students enjoy their lessons. And the students are producing projects that meet standards set by CSTA, and Common Core in math and language arts. Students are also producing projects that cross the silos into science curriculum. Furthermore, the support provided to me includes that I will be self-directed and leading the Computer Science classes in the near future. This is awesome!

My son has attended the summer camp for the past two summers. He never wants to repeat a summer camp but he enjoyed learning tech so much he returned. I like the many different subject options and all the cool perks like the 3D printer.

The Miller Institute for Learning has always made kids their top priority. They want all children to have an opportunity to learn cutting edge technology that will help them achieve success in the future. They have wonderful rapport with students and strive to make learning fun. Kids walk away feeling better about themselves and are better equipped to function in our technological world.

My son attended their summer class in 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed it. He's been into Lego robotics ever since and is in a robotics after-school program this Fall. I wish the Learning Institute would partner with local schools to make the schools' robotics programs more robust.

We are always very appreciative when someone takes the time to write a few kind words about our programs. We are also happy to note that we are offering many after school programs in the Bay area, in partnership with local schools as well as cities. We are excited to share that we just learned that our team, the San Mateo County Community STEM Alliance (a partnership with Pacifica, Half Moon Bay and San Carlos as well as our colleagues at Coastside STEM) has been selected for a grant, reaching out to under-served students in several areas of the County. We would welcome the chance to collaborate with our friends in RWC, such as North Star Academy, as well.
