DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / May 13, 2020 / Techie Factory (TF Ventures), the Dallas Texas based STEAM after-school academy franchisor is partnering with The Bureau of Magic (BoM) to bring the excitement of coding and technology to kids through the amazing world of the multi-Emmy award-winning "Lost in Oz", available on Amazon Prime Video.
This exciting partnership is part of Techie Factory's strategic plan to deliver the most engaging STEAM learning experience to kids around the country. By retooling their curriculum, TF will be able to incorporate the characters and world of "Lost in Oz" to ignite kid's curiosity in technology. They will also be using Bureau of Magic's "Lost in Oz" as the backdrop for their proprietary software, which will be used by both franchisees and Techie Factory´s non-profit arm (TF Promise) to deliver coding education to customers and underprivileged kids.
Freddie Halstead, CEO of TF Ventures said: "BoM's storytelling in "Lost in Oz" strives to spark the love for technology and science in all kids, especially girls, so it was an easy decision to partner with them to ensure that their stories will inspire children at Techie Factory to create amazing things. The fact that the team at The Bureau of Magic has already shown an inclination to help kids learn STEAM through their YouTube series of STEAM shorts just makes it a no brainer."
"At the Bureau of Magic, we are dedicated to expanding our titles across platforms that align seamlessly with our entertainment brands. Dorothy Gale in "Lost in Oz" loves working with machines. Techie Factory's goal to inspire and educate the next generation of scientists, technicians, engineers, artists and mathematicians with the help of our "Lost in Oz" cast of characters feels like a perfect match to us." ," said BoM Co-Founder, Mark Warshaw.
"Lost in Oz" follows 12 year-old Dorothy Gale and her best friend/dog Toto, who are whisked away on a magical tornado to a modern, metropolitan Emerald City in an action-adventure comedy series for the whole family.
