Just as kids love dinosaurs and rockets, SOIC and Friends will ignite your child’s interest in the wide, tiny world inside machines.

 

There’s a whole other world living beneath the glass and plastic of the machines we use every day. SOIC and Friends is cleverly crafted to draw children ages 2-8 into that world by making complex concepts so fun and exciting, they don’t realize how much they’re learning. When children develop a love of learning about how things work, they have a big head start at growing up to be the world’s next generation of brilliant technologists!

Let’s develop the next generation of technologists the world needs!

 

Tech industries across the board are already suffering from the lack of talent ready for the technology we will depend on in the future. At Pragma Media, we are doing our part to provide more approachable but detailed and accurate technical educational materials. And we need your help to make it happen. When you participate in our programs, you’ll be impacting the early education on-ramp into the tech industry, by helping us get more books to schools, libraries and directly into the hands of families. Together, we can educate the technologists of tomorrow, today and be ready for a brighter future!
