LEGO®, Minecraft, and Coding
Summer Camps in the SF Bay Area
Join us for small-group Summer Camps in the San Francisco Bay Area starting June 10th, 2024.
Our teachers mentor students, ages 5-13, in LEGO Design & Engineering, Robotics,
and Minecraft & Roblox adventures.
We've been teaching tech to students since 1994, and love creating new curriculum each year. We offer unique camps with custom-designed curriculum.
Our LEGO camps feature using gears and motors to design creatures and vehicles, as well as a robotics camp where students build and program bots to compete in fun challenges with an Olympics theme.
Our Minecraft camps range from beginner level to more advanced with use of redstone and command block coding. The Roblox and Minecraft Modding camp offers an introduction into designing 3d models and games.
Coding is a part of most of our camps, including Lego Max, Girls Tech Academy, Intermediate Minecraft, Robotics, and Roblox. Scratch is used in most of these camps to design games with code blocks.
As important as the curriculum is, creating a comfortable and fun environment for students to learn and express their creativity is what TechKnowHow camps is all about!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"My 7 year old son just completed the LEGO camp. It was fantastic! Well organized, very engaging and the instructor was supportive of my son's desires to share with the class throughout the session. First thing my son asked after class on Friday, "can I do that again?""
"This is by far the best coding program! My kids learned a lot in their coding camps and developed further interest in coding."
"The camps have been fantastic. Kevin, Tenzin, and Elias are really great. Their patience with kids and making sure all the kids are able to participate is truly amazing."
