Our Story

 

PLAYtek was established to meet the needs of bright, curious students who want to delve more deeply into technology and learning. Through *S.T.E.A.M. based activities that are age- appropriate and build upon prior knowledge, students have opportunities to do the following: 

  • Explore with hands-on activities that engage minds and feed innate curiosities. 

  •  Work both individually and collaboratively. 

  •  Learn resourcefulness and appropriate risk taking. 

  •  Engage in creative thinking and problem solving. 

  •  Learn to re-frame ‘failure’ by using mistakes as feedback that fuel ‘next step’ trouble-shooting. 

  • Test theories and persist with challenging tasks. 

  • Explore styles of leadership and communication. 

  • Recognize and practice a growth-mindset.
