Come Be a Part of an Educational Science Experience!

 

Often, science is a tool that explains the world around us. It teaches children about life and the world we live in. From a young age, children start inquiring about science. “Mommy, what makes the sky blue”?  “Daddy, how does my gold fish breathe under water”? Science provides answers to these questions for children and students of all ages. Science tells a story, challenges us and allows us think outside of the box!

High Touch High Tech brings “hands-on” science programs into schools around the world to ensure that this imperative subject is instructed in a fun and memorable way. Our staff works with various schools and their faculty members to coordinate “in-house” science field-trips to demonstrate how astonishing science really is!  If a fourth-grade science curriculum requires that the students are to be taught about “Physics” we will come to the school and transform the children into a junior physicist as they discover forces that affect motion. The scientist/instructor will discuss how energy takes various forms that are grouped based on their interaction with matter. They will then get to explore Edison’s inventions and even build their own electroscope to bring home! Next, they will have a hands-on experiment with static & current electricity. It will be a day that the students will never forget!

Our organization has been fortunate enough to inspire young minds across the globe. These informative, “hands-on” science programs allow students all around the world to experience what makes science so FUN! Our domestic and international operations are so grateful to have the opportunity to educate students about some of the “science world’s” most interesting topics. We are here to provide students with the idea that one day, they can create solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems. From the United States to the Middle East we are here to make a difference and improve the educational science experience for students everywhere. Come be a part of that educational science experience!

Happy 25th Anniversary to High Touch High Tech of Atlanta!

Happy 25th Anniversary to the High Touch High Tech of Atlanta Franchise!

 

 

To celebrate this anniversary we sat down with Helene Nelms to ask her a few questions about her time with HTHT ATL and her advice to anyone looking to invest in a HTHT Franchise!

What made you want to buy a HTHT Franchise? 

I enjoyed teaching for the founder, Dan Shaw, in Coral Springs FL, for a year in the company’s early stages.  I loved how his idea of “edutainment” thrilled both the teachers and students. During that time Dan began to sell franchises and I convinced my parents to partner with me to buy the metro Atlanta franchise. As a young single professional, I was excited to move out of Coral Springs FL, into a bigger city. Dianne, Richard and I believed in Dan’s vision and agreed to “make it happen” as Dad would say, in Atlanta, GA.

What advice would you give to a person looking to buy a HTHT Franchise?

HTHT provides is a time-tested product/service so market it in your territory in as many ways as possible. I am trying to slowly change with the times of social media but here is an old timer marketing tip that brought us in a lot of business. Every time you finish a program at a school drop off what we call “dear grade chair letters,”.  These letters begin by saying “Dear grade chair,” “we just successfully completed a hands-on science program with the (insert grade completed that day) Please inquire with them about how much the students and teachers enjoyed the experience.” Then continue explaining about your company and attach a brochure to each letter. Make sure you express that each program meets current grade specific standards for your area and are hands on and participatory by each student.  Ask the front office lady to kindly put the letters with brochures attached in the grade chair mail boxes of all grades except the grade you just completed. Therefore, at your office, you would have 6 stacks of letters for elementary school prepared with brochures attached that say…” We just successfully completed K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th” so that every time you go to one of those grades you grab five letters for that grade and put in all mailboxes except the grade you just completed.

What great experiences/trials/errors have you had with HTHT over the last 25 years?

WOW.  Not sure I can sum that up in a few lines but if I had to try I would say the last 25 years has taken a lot of hard work and dedication by both owners and employees but if you are going to pour your heart into your career it is extremely rewarding to know how much you, your partners, your teachers and assistants are positively influencing and impacting the lives of today’s youth. I am most grateful for the time flexibility the business provides the owners now that we are past the early years and established in our roles as partners.  Thanks to our outstanding, dedicated and reliable managers, teachers, and administrative assistants we grew the company as a team and I was able to raise three beautiful children in that time span alongside my two partners, that happen to be their grandparents. 🙂 My kids literally grew up at the office and with our extended High Touch High Tech family. Thanks to Dan’s original brilliant idea, Dianne, Richard, and I along with our exceptional team have had had the pleasure of positively impacting what I am guesstimating to be approximately 1.5 million children.  As to be expected, some years were more challenging than others both financially and logistically but to still be going strong after 24 years incorporated, I would say we must be doing something right. 🙂 In addition to our HTHT family, I am also lucky enough to have a supportive husband at home to bounce ideas off of.

What are you passionate about, what are your hobbies? 

We are a very sports minded family so much of my free time revolves around travel ball for all three of my teenagers. I also try to keep myself physically active with recreational athletics. Going to movies and comedy clubs are my favorite pastimes and I hope we get to travel more in the future.

Congratulations again, to Helene Nelms and her wonderful staff at HTHT of Atlanta!

Here is to another FUN 25 years!

Why Didn’t I Think of That? 10 Questions to Ask Before Buying a Franchise

Looking to start a new venture in the franchising world? Remember “Ask Why Before You Buy!

What we mean by this is, before buying a new franchise, there are several things you should ask the franchisor.  These questions can give you a lot of insight into what you can expect as part of this franchise. 

1. What initial services do you offer? This will let you know the level of involvement you can expect from the franchisor to help you get your new franchise off the ground.  

2. What assistance do you provide in obtaining finance?  Starting a franchise can be expensive, so knowing whether or not you can expect some help from the franchisor is important.  

3. What help will I receive in arranging local advertising and promotions? Are there standard promotions (radio spots, print ads, etc.) available for my use?  Advertising can be a big upfront expense, so it is important to know if you will need to budget for your own advertising campaign or the franchisor offers assistance in this area.   

4. Can you give me specific examples of problems that your franchisees have faced and how you have been able to help them? This question will help you find out how the franchisor supports franchisees. The franchisor should be able to provide examples about how a franchisee in need was helped.  

5. What can you tell me about some of your franchisees that have been very successful?  What about those who have not had great success?  Knowing what has worked in the past (and what hasn’t) will be very beneficial in developing your business plan.  

6. What kind insurance must I have? Do you have an arrangement with a broker or a company offering special rates?  Again, this is another expense that you may have to include in your budget.  

7. Do you provide ongoing training in the form of workshops, conferences, seminars, regional meetings, refresher or advanced courses?  Knowing that your franchisor will continually be offering support and guidance can put you at ease when you are starting a new franchise.  

8. What is the day-to-day business like for your franchise? This important, often overlooked, question will let you know what you can expect on a daily basis as a franchisee.  

9. What employee characteristics are typically found among employees at one of your franchises?  Employees are often the face of a business, so knowing what characteristics to expect could be important to your decision.  

10. What are relationships like between the franchisees Knowing if there is a familial feeling among the franchisees or heavy competition is an important dynamic to understand before becoming a part of a franchise. 

Starting your own business is exhilarating in itself, but it’s even better when you have an experienced support team by your side that has been there before, knows the many different aspects of the small business landscape, and can offer guidance every step of the way. 

That’s the High Touch High Tech (ht2) franchise advantage!
