Toby Foote – Co-Founder, Director of Operations

Toby Foote

Toby loves science and technology. His desire to explore this area of study didn’t stop after gaining his bachelors degree in Information Science from the University of Cincinnati. He went on to spend many years gaining programming and technology experience, working in technology groups at NASA, Compass Technologies, and KeyBank. However, after having children of his own, Toby wanted to use his knowledge to benefit children and built Classroom Antics.

Today, Toby takes great pride in knowing that since Classroom Antics’ inception in 2007, over 10,000 children (including his own) have channeled their excitement and creativity into highly valuable technology skills.
