@ SUNY Oswego
Oswego KidsTech consists of two programs: STEM 4 Kids K - 3 and Young Inventors (4th - 6th grades) which are hosted by Oswego Technology Student Association (OTSA), Department of Technology, and preservice Technology Education teachers at SUNY Oswego. Each program includes exciting educational activities focused on the relationships among the different components of STEM. The children experience different problem solving strategies as they learn about the designed world.

The International Technology Education Association (ITEEA) published a news release on Oswego KidsTech's 10th Anniversary of programming in Spring of 2022. We are now in our 12th year of programming!
Goals of KidsTech
KidsTech participants will:
recognize the connection between the different components of STEM
utilize STEM principles and concepts to solve problems
develop the thought processes and motor skills necessary to design, construct and test models
communicate their ideas while working productively in a team and/or by sharing with the entire classroom
The KidsTech programs are designed for students in grades K-6. The two programs currently offered are STEM 4 Kids and Young Inventors. The STEM 4 Kids program is for students in grades K-3, Young inventors is for students in grades 4-6. The two programs are taught by SUNY Oswego Technology Education Majors. In the spring we now also have a remote option where children may participate remotely via video conference from anywhere in NY State. This is made possible in part by generous funding provided by National Grid. Both on campus and remote versions receive the same STEM learning materials.
