Who We Are

The Open Brainery and TechVentures Studio offer exciting and innovative technology courses and workshops designed to ignite participants' curiosity and empower them with essential skills for the digital age.  What sets our program apart is the emphasis on creative learning. We focus on developing computational thinking skills essential for problem-solving in all areas of life.  We incorporate activities and projects that challenge participants to think critically, problem-solve, and collaborate. 

The Open Brainery and TechVentures Studio are located in the  New York City Metropolitan area. 

Our Approach

Hands-on Learning: We prioritize hands-on learning experiences.  We ensure that participants grasp the fundamentals through interactive exercises, projects, and games while having fun.


Creativity and Innovation:  We encourage participants to think critically, explore their imaginations, and develop unique projects and solutions. 

Computational Thinking: Participants learn to break down complex problems into smaller, manageable parts, analyze patterns, and devise logical solutions. These skills foster a systematic approach to challenges, promoting efficiency and effective decision-making.

Collaboration and Communication: We emphasize collaborative learning environments. Participants learn to articulate their ideas, listen actively, and collaborate effectively with their peers by working on group projects and participating in technical challenges. These skills are crucial in the digital age, where teamwork and communication are integral to success.
