History and Mission
Play-Well TEKnologies was founded by Tim Bowen in 1997. Introduced to the LEGO® building system in 1996 and recognizing it to be both a popular play medium and a tremendous learning medium, Tim began to develop projects which drew on his professional experience and combined the elements of fun, challenge, and learning. He began operating a summer camp program in 1997, followed by after school enrichment classes in 1998. With steady growth of the company, project development is now undertaken by a staff of instructors bent on constantly improving the programs.
At Play-Well TEKnologies we strive to:
- Build problem-solving skills
- Provide an opportunity for creative expression
- Foster a greater appreciation of how things work
- Encourage the qualities of inquisitiveness, self reliance, and self confidence in children
We do this in the context of fun-filled engineering and architectural projects, activities that both the children and the instructors enjoy!
