About Camp TechTerra

Camp TechTerra offers programs for students ages 5 to 14 that help them explore the natural world in makerspace communities through coding, digital storytelling, robotics, making and digital devices. Sharing, connecting and collaborating are integral to these authentic meaning-finding experiences. Students are taught the process of computational thinking within an environment that honors safety, choice, exploration and fun.

The TechTerra curriculum, inspired by Maker Education and Project Based Learning, was developed by Susan Wells, a national leader in mobile-integrated STEM education and veteran public school educator.
