Spirit of Technology™
Spirit of Technology™
goes well beyond just programming and robots.
Spirit of Technology™ (SoT) is an initiative by Spirit of Math.
SoT presents a unique approach to teaching technology. We believe that the key differentiators between Spirit of Technology and other programs is our 4 elements of drill (building fluency and automaticity), core curriculum (skills, knowledge and concepts), problem solving (reasoning, logical thinking and imagination), and collaborative group work. This ensures that students properly learn and practice skills, develop an in-depth understanding of the material and have an opportunity to apply their understanding, skills and imagination to solving problems while learning with others. As an introduction to this program, a summer camp has been created with the intent to spark the joy of the essence or “spirit” of technology.
When looking at programs for technology, we strongly felt that students should know how to work with technology, how to program it and create new capabilities. We also felt that students should have a greater understanding of how technology is integrated within all areas of the world and how it is affecting humanity.
Spirit of Technology™ Includes Topics in Each of The Following Areas
The Spirit of Technology™ (SoT) program has been created to introduce high-performing students to many topics and ideas that go well beyond just programming and robots.
- Coding in multiple languages
- Real world applications including robots , blockchain, cryptocurrency Internet of things, artificial intelligence, Big Data and security
- Design and animation
- Advanced use of Microsoft apps, Adobe apps, and other applications
- Hardware and technology infrastructure
- Responsible use of technology.

Spirit of Technology™ Summer Camps
In addition, Spirit of Technology™ offers students from grades 2 & 3 one-week summer day camp programs that explore syntax, programming logic and hands-on interaction and control of robots.
In this fun-filled week of technology, students will be introduced to the foundations of coding in multiple languages, hands-on robotics and creating their own games.
