techlab Community

techlab Community includes our efforts & collaboration with partners to inspire, challenge and motivate our 21st century leaders.

Free Debate Program

Techlab is proud to sponsor a FREE debate program for middle school kids, working with our partners, South Bay Youth Debate Academy.

Speech and Debate is widely regarded as one of the most beneficial activities done by middle-schoolers and high-schoolers. However there are currently very few viable options for middle schoolers to get a headstart on their debate needs.

Working with our partner, SBYDA, we provide:

  • Free coaching for middle schoolers
  • Tested round-winning tactics and strategies
  • Training led by skilled debaters who have participated in Nationals
  • Learning in a challenging competitive environment While having fun.
  • Classes start Sep. 10, 2018 and are every Monday from 6-8p (at our techlab facility) along with occasional tournaments on weekends. For more information or to register, go to SBYDA website.

    Inspire Speaker Series

    Techlab Inspire Series features industry leaders, researchers, technologists and students, and showcases the ways in which technology & education along with strong leadership and dedication, are changing the world.

    Topics will serve as inspiration for kids to make them think, challenge them, and motivate them. Some topics we are planning include,

    • What Facebook looks for in young budding innovators
    • Learning to love computers, my journey from Techlab to Google
    • How to reach and impact millions of kids globally through software
