About Play-Well TEKnologies

Kids are natural engineers, we help them realize it. Kids dive into our classes and exercise their innate gift for building. They come away understanding fundamental principles of engineering and physics. The experience boosts their confidence, creativity and ability to collaborate. Kids can't get enough.

Play-Well TEKnologies was founded by Tim Bowen in 1997. Introduced to the LEGO® building system in 1996 and recognizing it to be both a popular play medium and a tremendous learning medium, Tim began to develop projects which drew on his professional experience and combined the elements of fun, challenge, and learning. He began operating a summer camp program in 1997, followed by after school enrichment classes in 1998. With steady growth of the company, project development is now undertaken by a staff of instructors bent on constantly improving the programs.

Mission Statement

At Play-Well TEKnologies we strive to:

- Build problem-solving skills
- Provide an opportunity for creative expression
- Foster a greater appreciation of how things work
- Encourage the qualities of inquisitiveness, self reliance, and self confidence in children

We do this in the context of fun-filled engineering and architectural projects, activities that both the children and the instructors enjoy!
