It’s not what you think…It’s HOW you think…and WHAT you do.
Steve Jobs said in 2011 that Apple’s understanding that “technology, married with liberal arts, married with the humanities” is what helped make the iPhone a hit. This way of cross-disciplinary thinking is the foundation for learning at ATEC.
At ATEC, we grow and shape the Technological Imagination. As a community of learners, we think seamlessly across multiple disciplines and expand our understanding of the theories, concepts, and “languages” common to each area. We apply critical analysis, creative thinking, collaboration, and ethical reasoning and add skills in coding and design to create new media.
We are makers who learn through doing. We believe that making is a method, a process, a way of thinking, and a way of doing. The ATEC maker-culture blends art, technology, the humanities, science, robotics, and programming to design Future-Making projects and technological experiences that transform how people work, live, and play.
