ENTREPRENEUR

Josh founded Sci-tek.ca in 2014 but this was not his first taste of being an entrepreneur. He is a co-founder of Touch Typing 4 Life/Qwertynomics, and Touch Typing program designed for children and adults.  Joshua has held many roles from Teacher, Speaker, Software development designer and Network Manager.

He was the reason we started the program together, not only has he been instrumental in the building of this program he has also been through the program. This has enabled him to then teach others, especially mentoring students with learning differences in group and individual basis. 

He has just launched his own company www.Sci-tek.ca and now offers Lego Robotic classes for children and Summer Camps in combination with Qwertynomics. Children learn how to create, build and program Lego robots from scratch. They really do have a good time.
