 (STEAM) Enrichment Program for All Scholars

Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics (STEAM) empowers educators and students to dive into hands-on, fun STEAM projects. Young innovators will gain the confidence and skills they need to create, experiment and design creative projects using electronic parts. We are passionate about providing hands-on STEAM and making experiences for children. Our STEAM program will prepare our scholars to transfer skills into the 21st century career demands.

Real-World Connection

Our enhanced curriculum is different because we use real electronic components and craft supplies that students are familiar with rather than proprietary parts. This means that students use materials and supplies that real electricians and engineers use. Knowledge gained from our projects is easily transferable. Kids can take their creations home and re-work them with things you have around the house.

         STEAM programs and lessons begin at kindergarten. Our lessons have multiple entry points and are easy to scaffold to meet each student’s needs. Teachers differentiate and extend the lessons so that everyone has access to projects.

We believe the best way to learn STEAM is to provide repeated exposure to project-based learning processes. Students will be able to practice the skills and thinking required for STEAM subjects. Any misconceptions will be constantly put to the test.

STEAM + Coding Facilitator’s Guide

STEAM + Coding

The STEAM + Coding Program is designed for students in grades 3-8. With this program you can engage 12 students to participate in 6 integrated, cross-curricular creative electronics and coding activities. They will design and develop hands-on projects and complete challenges that encourage team building. This program will engage students to further explore the fields of computer science and engineering.
