Digital Climbers is a program that encourages students ages 8 and up to work independently to master technology skills. Participants compete with other students as they chart their progress and earn badges, rewards, and public recognition. Digital Climbers motivates kids and teens to learn by using tools such as 3D printers and design applications, snap circuits, Adobe Photoshop, Garage Band, and the Osmo educational gaming system.
