Kidstarter: DFW Excellerator’s New STEM-based Program for Kids

DFW Excellerator announced that they’ll be launching Kidstarter, “an interactive series of workshops for kids to participate in their own maker program,” to begin on September 6.

“Makers are innovative, hands-on creative people that build a product using do-it-yourself techniques.  The KidStarter program aims to nurture a passion for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) in kids age 6 and up by way of fun, cooperative building sessions.”

The Back-to-School KidStarter Event will be on Saturday, September 6 from 2:00 – 5:00 pm at DFW Excellerator. Kids will work with parents and instructors to build a product from a kit during the workshop.

“For the past month,  we’ve hosted the SAP Startup Accelerator seminar with TiE, lead a team in the NTx App Challenge, and helped one of our members win major competition in Silicon Valley.  We hope to extend our success to the children of our community with our KidStarter program,” says Jason Liu, founder and managing director of DFW Excellerator.

Registration information is here. For more information on Kidstarter, visit their website or follow them on Facebook and Twitter!
