The future job market needs young adults educated in STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math). We are proactively enriching our kids in all areas of STEM in our After School program and Summer Camp. In 2018, we’re introducing a more robust STEM program and adding new technology.
Architectural Design & Build: Students can design in our CAD program and then build with sticks. We’re also adding 3D printers.
Robotics: Our younger kids learn to build with Legos. Our older kids design and build their own robots.
Life Sciences: We have a hydroponic system, and an outdoor garden. Kids have hands-on experience with how plants and food are grown. We have a butterfly room that lets kids observe the life cycles from egg to caterpillar to metamorphosis of an adult butterfly.
Physical Sciences: We engage kids in gravity projects, where they learn how it works, and how it’s affected at different speeds.
Science Fair: We encourage kids to experiment and explore science, and show their work in our annual science fair.
Math: We keep interested in math in many ways, one being a competitive Mathathon. This is like a spelling bee, but with math problems.
