We are proud to support Maker Kids Club (MKC), a curriculum-aligned entrepreneur program for Year 6 and 7 classrooms. By launching and running their own businesses, students learn valuable enterprise skills that complement STEM skills we promote via Techtrails.
If your school enrolls, ask the teacher to mention WiTWA so we receive 10% of the program price to fund future Techtrails incursions.
