Online Learning Paths

TechyKids can be done at home (or anywhere!)  It is perfect for those who want to learn technology skills.  Below are the products we recommend for individuals for ages 3-105 years.  As there is a lower age limit for some of the tools, there is no upper age limit as the skills TechyKids teach are relevant, creative, technical, and uses critical thinking.  The skills learned and the tools below can level to wherever your abilities are and grow to.

If you have the tool already you can just get the online course.  If you are new to the tool entirely (as most are), we recommend getting started with one of the Virtual or Physical tools, combined with the applicable TechyKids Class.
