Bryce Wolkowitz who owns a gallery in Chelsea is also passionate about education. Bryce is teck-e’s founder and CEO. Now that I am doing a little digging it appears there some powerful people behind Teck-e; David Rockwell, Jon Kamen and Beth Rosenberg. All of them care about technology and the arts.
Teck-e offers creative problem solving skills by introducing students to technology. They are teaching coding with Minecraft, technology to create wearable textiles, electronic circuitry to create sounds and an invention lab with sensors, magnets, LED’s and more.
The classes are held at ICP (International Center of Photography). They are for kids 8-13. There are summer week-long workshops and now is the time to sign up.
It is so great to see people in the art community to get behind technology education. Coding will help these young budding artist be creative and think critically about what they can build. The merging of arts and technology is so great to see.
