Summer STEM Academies

Join us this summer at our Young Engineers Club, 
where we engage kids in building, tinkering, and creating ... the underlying skills of understanding the world around us .... making sense of structures, electronics, bicycles, computers, and more!

 

During Young Engineers Club use items as basic as craft sticks and straws, to complicated electronics such as Makey Makey, and robotics such as Sphero. The goal is to develop students' problem solving skills through creating and collaborating with peers. Students are encouraged to think outside the box and come up with diverse solutions to real world problems. STEAM has never been so fun!

STEM Camps offer kids the ability to learn about the world around them while developing important Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math skills.
