With over 7 years as STEM For Kids, today we are in 12 states in the US and in 4 countries. And we have just begun! A long exciting journey is ahead of us.
Simplicity, I found, is the key when engaging with children and to keep our team focused. Our mission “ Making STEM fun and real ” does just that. While we have grown from that one curriculum to 40+ and multiple locations, our core remains focusing on simplicity… taking complex real life applications and challenges and making them a child’s play is what we do best.
Continuous improvement and curriculum innovation are at the heart of how we operate. Fresh kids friendly content are regularly added to keep our franchisees’ businesses relevant in this fast changing world of science, technology, engineering and business. It never gets boring here!
I feel so blessed to have an awesome team, a team that continuously strives to live The STEM WayTM and to create the best possible experiences for children, parents and all stakeholders.
Moreover, our franchisees are awesome! It is such an amazing group of technologists, educators, stay-at-home parents and business people.
As I think about the future of STEM For Kids, I am marveled by the endless possibilities of joining forces with collaborators in business and academia, of helping many future entrepreneurs find their dreams in replicating STEM For Kids in their markets and of children worldwide experiencing the wonders of STEM.
To all the parents, children, teachers, schools, communities, franchisees, collaborators and vendors who encourage us, make us better and stronger every day,
