DevTech Programs


The DevTech Research Group at Tufts University offers a number of opportunities for educators, administrators, children, families, parents, and students alike! For educators we offer professional development workshops in the summer months, as well as at various events we attend throughout the year. Additionally, we proudly launched the Early Childhood Technology (ECT) Certificate Program, designed for educators and practitioners working with young children in pre-kindergarten through second grade in diverse educational settings such as schools, museums, libraries, and daycares. The program will develop students’ knowledge and skills in technology and engineering with a focus on early childhood. We hold weeks of summer programs with hands-on exposure to different developmental technologies for young children, led by experienced DevTech members! Furthermore, the DevTech Research Group employs Tufts University students, giving them the opportunity to work in a collaborative, creative environment.
