Frequently Asked Questions

Scroll down to explore our responses to frequently asked questions about our popular LEGO, robotics, and technology summer programs. If you still have a question or would like to talk with us, just give us a call at (650) 638-0500.

  • What is TechKnowHow's teaching philosophy?
    TechKnowHow classes are designed so that students can learn technology skills while engaged in interesting hands-on projects. Our goal is to have students learn how to do some amazing things with technology—all in a supportive and fun atmosphere.
  • What is the camper-teacher ratio?
    The camper-teacher ratio for our camps is 10:1.
  • What types of students are the classes designed for?
    If a student has a strong interest in the class content, there is a very strong likelihood that he/she will enjoy the class, regardless of his/her experience with specific technology (computers, LEGO® elements, etc.). We have found that interest, and not prior experience, is the key ingredient in ensuring a meaningful experience in our classes.
  • Will there be adult supervision throughout the day?
    Yes! Our staff supervise the students throughout the day, both in class, as well as during the recess and lunch breaks.
  • Does each student have their own Computer/LEGO® components/building kit to work with?
    For all camps, students receive their own building kits and computers to work on their projects. In two camps, there is an element in the camp where students may team up. In Robot Adventure, students work to program movemnents for robot mouse®. In Radical Robots, with EV3 elements and Sphero® SPRK, there is a portion of the class where students work as a team to program.
  • Do students have any time for outdoor recreation?
    Yes, we have a 20 minute recess break in the morning and another in the afternoon. During these times, students and staff go outside to eat snacks and participate in different recreation activities. In addition, if the student is staying full day, there is a half-hour lunch recess between classes.
  • Do you serve lunch or a snack?
    No, please have each camper bring his/her own lunch, snacks and beverages.
  • Is there extended care supervision available?
    Yes, the majority of our locations offer morning and afternoon extended care. Please visit the locations pages or check the daily schedule of each camp to determine if extended day hours are available.

Still have a question? We'd be more than happy to talk with you in person! Give us a call at (650) 638-0500.
