The goal of our Local Tech Heroes programs are to offer our innovative experiences to as many students as possible through a combination of camps, classes and workshops throughout the year. In addition to our successful Summer camps, we also have curriculum in place to offer after-school and in-school classes to continue these collaborations once the Summer ends for extended learning opportunities. By continuing to connect Central Ohio businesses with schools and communities during the school year, we hope to continue these innovative programs year round.
