All the fun of a week-long Techsplorers summer camp in one exciting weekend!

Weekend Workshops run from September to April and are located at the Montessori Community School (MCS) in Durham. Both boys and girls are welcome to attend — Engineering is for EVERYONE!

Do you wish you could share your Techsplorers experience with a friend? With our new Refer-A-Friend Discount, you can receive a $15 discount for every friend you invite and your friend will receive a $15 discount too! Also, with the new Sibling and Multi-Session Discount, you can save $15 on each additional registration. See Weekend Workshop Discounts for more information.

 

NOTE: Please do not wait until the last minute to register. Workshops with low enrollments are generally cancelled 2 to 3 weeks in advance to give any registered individuals time to makes changes to their plans. If you are interested in a class but currently unsure if it may conflict with your schedule, the best way to tentatively reserve a seat and let us know of your interest is to fill out the provided registraion form but skip the payment process. As the workshop gets closer, we will contact anyone on the roster who has not paid yet before making any final cancellation decisons.
