Instructor: Rekha Iyer
Rekha is passionate about fostering learning in a fun and safe environment. She is a firm believer in the growth mindset and that all children can succeed in anything they set their mind to. Rekha aims to provide opportunities for kids to develop the 4 C’s of 21st century skills – critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity. To this end, she has coached elementary and middle school Destination Imagination teams for the past three years. She has also taught Math Olympiad classes at her daughter’s school. She is continually amazed by what kids can create when given the opportunity. The TechyKids camp provides both the structure and flexibility for kids to learn and simultaneously apply their learning in their own original project.
Aside from working with children over the past 3 years, Rekha has a background in bioinformatics and molecular biology along with an MBA from Berkeley-Haas. She looks forward to meeting you and your child!
