STEAM Days

 What are STEAM Days?

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in the four disciplines— science, technology, engineering and mathematics— in an interdisciplinary and integrated approach. STEAM influences and shapes the world we live in. The rise in STEM/STEAM occupations is pushing the demand to introduce these disciplines at an early age, and one way to celebrate that impact is STEM/STEAM Day.

It is no surprise that STEAM concepts are a critical part of every child’s education. Teaching these concepts in engaging, creative ways to youth not only makes learning more fun, but it can also inspire students for more STEAM! We aim to bring a wholesome and holistic educational experience to kids and teens. Our STEM/STEAM days deliver personalized workshops and activities that focus on the learning needs of students.
