Note from UTD: We encourage every one (3rd graders to adults) to start at level 1 and climb up! Focus on the journey instead of speeding towards the destination!! However, we do come across middle/high school students who are paranoid about sitting with 3rd graders and want to progress faster.  They can start at level 2 with Alice workshop.

Registration information is available here.
