Review for Techstart Education Foundation, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

TechStart is a fantastic non profit organization that helps teachers create engaging, rigorous, and problem based curriculum. The organization helps students bridge the gap between math and science facts and the application of those facts. It encourages teachers to use curriculum that is thought provoking and challenging. I hope to continue attending their trainings for years to come.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I created pre-engineering, gaming, and web design classes based on content I learned during SuperQuest trainings. I also started a robotics team at Tualatin High School.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The technical training opportunities in the summer. The eChamp program is wonderful too.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I've met many technology teachers from the Portland Metro region. Don Domes was particularly helpful when I first started teaching.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

This organization to grow in a variety of ways with more money. It could pay professional engineers and computer scientists to teach some classes, it could create more stipend money for robotics coaches to facilitate more after school technology programs.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
