High Tech Kids is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit that supports Minnesota programs:
- Junior FIRST® LEGO® League - grades K-3
- FIRST® LEGO® League - grades 4-9
- FIRST® Tech Challenge - grades 7-12
Through these programs we train, teach and empower student teams, coaches and volunteers.
With the help of more than 1800 volunteers, we work hard to offer high energy, fun, team-based programs and competitions that celebrate science and technology. Kids learn how to work together, solve real-world problems and become leaders. To support High Tech Kids is to invest in our children, to share our passion, and to inspire these future innovators, leaders, collaborators, and problem solvers for the 21st century.
High Tech Kids now serves over 5,400 kids across Minnesota each year. Since our inception in 1999 we have helped over 38,000 students discover the fun in science and technology.
Join us in inspiring the next generation of science enthusiasts! It's a great way to spend a cold Saturday or Sunday. You may even become inspired yourself.
