The world of STEM is moving really fast. Think about the technological innovations around you… what was once hot five years ago is not so anymore. Many new technologies that didn’t even exist back then are today’s realities. While many schools are trying to provide STEM to their students on a consistent basis, there are limitations with resources, and specifically, teacher bandwidth. Teaching to meet testing standards and hands-on explorations with STEM are often times conflicting goals for schools dealing with various other competing priorities. Moreover, staying on top of the ever-evolving STEM and developing lesson plans to bring complex real-life STEM to children in a meaningful way requires dedicated focus. That’s where we come in. Each of our curricula goes through rigorous development and testing to make cutting-edge STEM a child’s play.
Schools play a very important role. Think of us as providing means to enrich the learning at school and stretching it into the application domain.
We work with many schools and school districts to help augment their STEM efforts. If you would like to see us at your school, connect us with your principal and/or other decision makers. Complete a simple form to get started.
STEM For Kids offers the most comprehensive portfolio of kid friendly STEM programs. The portfolio is designed to provide your children a wide view of the amazing world of engineering and technology. Then, when they feel ready to dig deeper, the children can take courses that take them deeper into specific topics. To decide what’s right for your children, take cues from them and gauge based on their interest and age. Here are some ways to think about this:
You know your child the best. You will find age / grade level recommendations for each offered program. Those serve as guidelines for optimal experience for all participants. We recognize that real-life is not one size fits all and your child brings their own set of unique skills and abilities. If you believe your child is ready for a higher-level program, discuss with your local provider.
Think about how your movie experience changed from pure 2D to 3D as 3 dimensional movies brought a sense of depth to what you are watching. In many amusement parks, you experience 4 dimensional viewing wherein you feel the wind or the water splashing on your face as it happens on the screen.
STEM For Kids’ 4 Dimensional learning is similar in terms of bringing the core ideas (of science, math, etc) and cross cutting concepts (that show children how learning relates) to the career connections and practices (to bring depth) along with the feeling of fun and engagement.
STEM PAL (Participant Achievement Levels) is aimed to motivate participants and celebrate their ongoing quest to acquire STEM knowledge and expertise. Based on participation, research, collaboration and application, children can go from Level 1 (Novice ) to Level 12 (Legendary).
Children who register with us for programs beginning January 1, 2019 or later are automatically enrolled into STEM PAL.
At this time, only the programs that you register with us directly (at stemforkids.net/register) qualify for earning PAL credits.
Partial programs are not credit eligible at this time. Children earn credits when they register and attend all days of the offered program.
