TASCO After-School Technology Programs

TASCO offers free after-school technology programs for teens in grades 6 through 12.

These courses are designed to introduce teens to different media techniques and then progress to hands-on learning experiences. Participants use digital cameras, camcorders, and computers in our state of the art facility. Our programs are fun, value based programs, so teens want to be involved. A “Family and Friends Night” is held at the end of each semester to recognize and showcase the class accomplishments.
