Kindergarten

Adopt-A-Kindergarten

Through the 'Adopt-a-Kindergarten' program, kindergartners are introduced to various professional technology fields. Members of the Thaddeus Stevens' faculty and staff visit the kindergarten class at their elementary schools four times during the school year for one hour to showcase examples of technology that are used in related careers. Students learn about the profession and participate in hand-on-demonstrations.

The students then visit Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology and see the faculty and staff working in their own setting. At the end of the program, a graduation is held for the kindergartner with family and friends in attendance.
