A special welcome to families of South Sutter Charter School, Ocean Grove Charter School, Sky Mountain Charter School and Inspire Charter School! We are an approved vendor.

What is TechyKids?

TechyKids is an online project-based learning platform that teaches robotics and coding concepts. Kids immediately apply these concepts creating their own original project. As they learn concepts they are also exposed to real world applications of these concepts – inventions that have changed the world.

Our platform is a unique patent-pending learning system that blends the power of current online technology with hands-on, real world learning.

What Makes TechyKids Unique?

Students build a profile of skill badges and portfolio of original projects to showcase their achievements. Badges are earned as each lesson is completed and correspond to the subject matter learned. Every project they do is displayed on its own web page so kids can start assembling their very own digital portfolio!

Lessons are modular and consist of quality video lessons, activities and quizzes. These modules can be rearranged to facilitate personalized learning growing in both depth and breadth.

Every student on the TechyKids system gets their own account that they can use to access courses on-demand, learn, view progress and submit projects.
