Wichita's home for the art of computer fun.

Since 2008, Pixel Time has been Wichita’s fun and friendly place to learn more about everyday technology. Kids learn how to design games, code apps, and make animations. Grandparents learn about social media. And everyone learns how to take better photos in Camera Obedience School. We help people get the most from their Apple technology, including iPads, iMacs, and laptops.
