Kid's Tech Day
 

Event Details

Hosted by Turn5, this free community event will take place in Paoli, PA and will highlight emerging technology. We have partnered with local organizations who specialize in the education of these technologies specifically designed for children.

Upon arrival, each child will receive a Tech Passport Book. Children will be encouraged to explore the space and visit unique learning stations at their own pace. At each station they will learn about a tech topic and will be encouraged to ask questions and try out different tech gadgets. Stations will include:
