K-12 Programs and Initiatives

K-12 Programs

students at Tech-Link

We aim to significantly increase children's interest in our activities and sustain that interest throughout their academic careers. Engineers-to-be need to be inspired and feel connected to remain engaged and the Quality of Life Technology (QoLT) Center is committed to broadening educational opportunities for all young students.
