As we work with youth, we strive to uphold four fundamental tenets:

  1.      Teens have to be an active participant in their own learning.
  2.      To grow in your craft you must be willing to create, critique, and present your work.
  3.      Deep learning requires commitment, persistence, and play.
  4.      Technology is a tool to use as a means of achieving your goals.
