What if there were a place to go where you could build your own robot, electric car, web app, or even a dancing toaster? What if that place were packed full of people with a passion for science and technology, solving problems, making things, teaching and learning? What if that place were just down the road?
We think there should be such a place. We are TEC Foundation.
Building great technology education, one TEC Hub at a time.
A place next-door for awesome projects, and the most inspiring technology education imaginable!
What is TEC Foundation?
Technology Education Cooperative (TEC) Foundation is a 501c3 Non-Profit Public Charity that is formed for the purpose of inspiring a new generation of science and technology professionals. TEC Foundation actively promotes and supports the formation and growth of TEC Hubs.
What is a TEC Hub?
TEC Hubs are rallying points for anyone or any institution that cares about creating a motivational environment for technology education that is hands-on, inspirational, and fun. A TEC Hub is formed and operated by the community it serves. A TEC Hub could be anything from a group that meets in the back of a hobby shop to talk about their latest projects to a community center with a full machine shop and computer lab dedicated to providing support for science fairs, robotics teams and anyone who has an idea they want to develop.
We value cooperation, creativity, innovation, hands-on learning, fun competition, having fun making things, and awesomeness. :)
We are just getting started but we want to bring our TEC Hubs to communities all over the US--and who knows, maybe we won't stop there!
