Today’s world is heavy on the technology. Computers and gaming are everywhere we look, and today’s kids are getting more and more interested in the programming side of the computer and video games that they love. That’s why I think Tech Trep Academy is such an interesting idea. It’s a way for kids to learn about what they love and gain highly valuable skills for their futures.logo large Tech Trep Academy (give the gift of education) + a $150 Nike Gift Card!

From Gaming to Programming and More with Tech Trep Academy

I want to be sure I get this out of the way first thing. Tech Trep Academy is about more than computer and game programming. It’s about learning so many different aspects of how the digital world can enhance the passions your children already have. With Tech Trep Academy, kids can learn everything from computer and game programming to animation to business and financial literacy and more.

I think Tech Trep Academy is so great because it’s bridging the gap between traditional and digital learning. That’s important to me because it’s my opinion that as the world changes, the way our children learn needs to change as well. Online tutorials are nice and can help teach a new skill, but what about helping our kids use that skill in the real world? What about steering that huge gamer into a career he might love by giving him a course in computer or gaming programming?

That’s what Tech Trep Academy does. It allows our kids to dive into the world of technology and do it in a way that can enrich their lives and the world around them, enhancing their knowledge, and preparing them for the world where STEM is the norm and no longer the exception.

  1. wen budro says

    My favorite part is that the learning is hands-on and that the subjects would appeal to my childrens’ interests.

  2. Courtnie says

    Become an Audacity software expert
    Create and edit audio
    Add fun effects to music and voice tracks
    Mix and master multitrack audio files

  3. says

    I learned that the courses are things that my teen would totally be interested in and are really relevant to today’s world. I love the Minecraft courses and financial literacy.

  4. D Schmidt says

  5. Dana Rodriguez says

    I love that Tech Trep Academy helps you learn more about what you love, so you can give your passions a purpose.

  6. Michelle C says

    I see a lot of courses my kids would enjoy, including 3D PRINTING AND DESIGN. My son is showing a real interest in 3D printing!

  7. Lisa says

    I like the variety of classes that they offer. Financial Literacy for Youths would teach kids good spending habits at an early age. Other classes like Programming Foundations and Become a Terp would also help them on into adulthood.

  8. Sue E says

    My grandkids love Minecraft! I like that they can teach them how to make a mod and much more. It lets them “Dare to Create.”

  9. Ashley C says

    I love that that the parents don’t need to be tech savvy! That’s great because sometimes I just don’t want to learn new things!

    • says

      Jenny – Yes, he would! Kids love our Minecraft course. Take 35% off our courses for the holidays! The coupon code to be used at checkout is: mommyhoodchronicles35

  10. Amanda Morris says

    My favorite part is t aught by real humans — Video chat connects you to expert instructors and online tech mentors

  11. Crystal W says

    I love that the courses are so well rounded. Not just for the techie kid ..seems to have of artistic courses like the 3D sculpture and sound mixing. I love that it gives kids a chance to explore those nontraditional interests but in an educational way that will expand their minds!

  12. Julie says

    I like the Tech Trep selection of classes.They have some fun looking ones like Drawing, Sculpting and Stop-Motion Animation.

  13. Taryn T. says

    My favorite part is that they are encouraging kids to use their creativity, build, and engineer! These are such important skills.

  14. Samantha Daleo says

    I like seeing all of the children with that spark in their eyes. Especially the one with the microphone. They all remind me of my daughter. This is a school I think she would love to go to.

  15. Jessica M. says

    I loved that the kids were so excited and the learning was so fun for them! My kids would love so many of the different activities, thought the designing portion would be their favorite!

  16. Sharon Cubic says

    I like that the courses are taught by real people. My son loves mine craft mods and the 3D printing is amazing

  17. Sandy Cain says

    My favorite part (and to my mind, the most important part!) is that young children will be safe using this online. Predators are everywhere, as I found out to my sorrow. Tech Trep recived a certificate of safety from the kidSAFE Seal Program. The internet can be a jungle, so this is always my number 1 priority!

  18. Lauryn R says

    This program sounds so cool! I love that their goal is to make learning a passion for kids. My daughter would love the Minecraft programming course, she’s only 6 and is an expert at that game already!

    • says

      Thanks Lauryn – kids do love the courses, because we find what they are truly passionate about and help them dare to create. Take 35% off our courses for the holidays! The coupon code to be used at checkout is: mommyhoodchronicles35

  19. Heather says

    My daughter is obsessed with Minecraft and is always trying to learn something new. She would find this interesting.

  20. Jillian Too says

    I learned that they have a course on 3D Printing and Design. I think that 3D printing is an important part of our future.

  21. Brigitte B says

    I think this would be a great way to teach kids how to be entrepreneur. I especially love the course on 3D printing.

  22. Marcia Goss says

    I like the fact that parents don’t have to be tech savvy. In fact, they can learn right along with their kids from mentor.

  23. Lorri k says

    Anytime you can teach youths real world skills it is a wonderful way to prepare them for the world ahead. I love this!

  24. Darlene Ysaguirre says

    I love the encouragement they give throughout the video. Being the owner of a 3d skateboard shop would be something most kids would love to be a part of lol.

  25. Julie Matek says

    I love that All courses are built with the young student in mind and include all the interactive content, demo videos, checkpoints, projects, and required software (unless otherwise noted).

    Students also have unlimited access to an Online Mentor for help, feedback, and support, as needed.

  26. Robin Abrams says

    I love that It’s about learning so many different aspects of how the digital world can enhance the passions your children already have.

  27. Wehaf says

    I love that they include basic courses like financial literacy (which is *so* important and almost never taught in schools!) and programming foundations.

  28. Kara says

    I like that Tech Trep Academy offers a financial literacy program. Traditional schooling teaches very little about it, as is evidenced by the percentage of grown adults lacking the basic skills to handle their money. Teach them young to succeed!

  29. Leigh Anne Borders says

    I would love to sing my son up for one of these courses. They have quite a variety that I know he would enjoy like the game designing one.

    • says

  30. Katy says

    Besides teaching kids about STEM principles while making it fun for them, I love that the classes are interactive as the child can video chat with their teacher and share projects with other friends, classmates and family.

  31. Eileen Richter says

    So nice to go at your own pace. And I love the Sound and Audio mixing tech program. I know someone who would like to do this!

  32. Bobbie Smith says

    Oh how my grandson would love the gaming design. He has such an imagination, and this would be so perfect for him.

  33. clynsg says

    I like that they take the child’s interest and then show them that tech is more than having your nose and fingers tied to a device screen.

  34. Alexis dwyer says

    The drawing,sculpting and tech prep animation course seems exciting. I like the diversity and uniqueness of the programs offered.

  35. Carolyn Daley says

    I like that the tech trep academy can help you utilize your skills, creativity, and passions to create something wonderful.
