Although a degree in science or education would be beneficial, it is not required. Many of our current franchisees had never facilitated a science experience prior to becoming a High Touch High Tech (ht2) franchise owner.
Like any small business, or franchise business, a confident attitude is needed. Experience in sales and marketing, business administration, and working with children is the skill set that will help you jump start your operation and support long-term growth. Our franchisees have an entrepreneurial spirit, enjoy working with children, recognize the need for quality science education and enrichment and want to make a valuable contribution to their community.
We recommend every High Touch High Tech franchise owner gain experience in the field by facilitating programs and experiments during the initial start-up phase. This first-hand knowledge is beneficial when marketing your services to schools, international schools, preschools, camps, and any new customers within your territory. As your business grows, you will hire a staff of scientists to facilitate our popular science programs so that you can focus on and continue to grow your franchise business. View the staffing page for more information.
Our scientists use a practical teaching method that guides students through engaging discussions and provides step-by-step instructions on how to perform experiments. All ht 2 programs are hands-on for each and every student. We are not a show, but rather an up-close experience where students execute real experiments using real science materials.
Our programs align with national and state standards for science and include fun and educational science projects. High Touch High Tech programs span all areas of science, including but not limited to: chemistry, biology, earth science, weather, climate, physics, genetics, space, etc. Some of our "fan favorites" include: chemical reactions, erupting volcanoes, launching rockets, making water fly, electricity, magnetism, and much more. All programs are accompanied by a dialogue, supply list and any additional supportive materials to help you teach the necessary concepts. View the curriculum development page for more information.
A High Touch High Tech franchise is a business opportunity you can easily operate from within your home. As your business grows, you may feel it necessary to lease or purchase office space; however, that decision is yours to make when the time is right.
