I am glad that I discovered The Learnatory STEAM Program. I believe that my child has an edge....

My son was part of the GenTech* family from 2nd grade to 7th grade. He's graduating from HS next year

This summer in The Learnatory, I really enjoyed everything. If I stayed home, I wouldn't of had this much fun.

I liked the Green Screen class! And, I liked Robert, Joey, Kareem, Marcus, and Khadija. The camp was nice.
