Social and Emotional Learning With STEM

Every child deserves early hands-on exploration of real-life science and engineering in a fun way.

Why Fun? So that the kids are engaged. They enjoy their experience and feel the desire to do more.
Why Make It Real? So that they they understand the “so what” behind the STEM concepts, see a connection to real-life careers and relate it to what they are learning in their schools.
See the world-renowned STEM For Kids' 4 Dimensional Learning that is making STEM Fun and Real for children.

Instructors are knowledgeable. informative and caring…My son comes home from camp every day with new skills learned and new ideas formed. His creativity sky-rockets when surrounded with technology and with teachers who encourage his left brain ideas.
