Direct to Tech

Kidzu is excited to partner with AI for Teachers and The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics to help connect you “direct to tech” that will engage, inspire and enhance your family’s enjoyment and understanding of the ever expanding digital universe.

Join us for a celebration and study of computer science and coding. Created for Computer Science Week in December, our curricular-aligned Computer Science and Coding Learning Kit is great to use with K-2 students year-round.
