2016 Program - Kids' Tech University (KTU)    
2009 Lecture Kids’ Tech University is a semester-long event! In January, February, March, and April there is an all-day event that consists of an interactive session, which is centered on answering a question about the world around us, and a hands-on component, which features the Virginia Tech professors, students, clubs, and community. Kids can take part in the virtual labs and forum after the all-day event to continue to cultivate their interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
