TEKI (which stands for Technology Education-Knowledge-Instruction) was founded by Howard Weinrib, an educational technology specialist with over 20 years in public education. The program is based on his years of experience in dealing with K-12 students, families and the experiences shared over the years. His philosophy involves building self-confidence and leadership qualities, while integrating 21st century technology into learning.  For almost a decade, Howard has run a technology summer program that he launched in Montclair, NJ. In providing a fun and creative environment for children grades 2-8, TEKI focuses on science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. Our certified teachers engage campers through state-of-the-art technology and hands-on instruction.
