What Our Clients Say

“Without Kohknowco Lab I’m not sure I would have learned to program and I certainly wouldn’t have had as much fun as I did.  Oh, and I presented at Microsoft Tech-Ed and was on TVNZ Breakfast Show when I was 15!”

Jay Harris
SOFTWARE ENGINEER @ GOOGLE, SYDNEY

“Creative Forest’s Kohknowco Lab gave me the freedom to find my passion and study it to my heart’s desire throughout my high schooling.  I enjoyed every minute of it.  I still keep in touch with the mentors and business connections I met throughout the process.”

Francis
Malloch-Boe
DEVELOPER @ EZYVET, AuCKLAND

“Creative Forest’s Kohknowco Lab provided me with the most amazing educational experience I could ever have imagined.  It was full on, fun and helped me to find the confidence to do things I never knew I could do!  I wish everyone could have this opportunity.”

Eiko Olijkan
FOunder @ Eiko Films, Freelance Designer, CHRISTCHURCH
