STEAM Programs [Feb17-24]

February 15, 2018

Does homework often turn into a battleground at your house? Can’t decide who hates it more? You or the kids? Sometimes it feels like you have to be a rocket scientist to help your kids with homework. What if you could engage them with learning in a whole different way now and then? Our STEAM Programs provide the perfect lab for you and your kids to do just that.


STEAM is a way to teach how all things relate to each other, in school and in life. It’s more fun than traditional learning styles and makes more sense to all types of learners because it is based on the natural ways that people learn and are interested in things.

The philosophy of STEAM revolves around the concept that:

STEAM = Science & Technology interpreted through
Engineering & the Arts, all based in Mathematical elements.
