The Computer Clubhouse provides an environment where Clubhouse members not only learn to be effective users of technology, but also learn to be designers and creators of technology.   Participants are given the ability to:

  1. Express themselves through the use of technology ("technological fluency");
  2. Collaborate, communicate, and work in teams;
  3. Solve complex problems;
  4. Develop, plan, and execute complex projects; and
