Techiekids

Technology is a critical component of 21st Century education and yet many students are not exposed to the computer tools that are critical for success until middle school. In Techie Kids, Right Brain Curriculum has designed an engaging program aimed specifically at 3rd, 4th and 5th graders that teaches them to design websites, use PowerPoint, Microsoft Excel, Google Earth and create online timelines. Students choose a research topic they are interested in learning more about and conduct safe, online research while creating a website and PowerPoint presentation to give to parent guests during the final class.
