STEAMbuilding | Experiential STEM Workshops
STEM education refers to the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. STEAM education incorporates the “A” for the arts – recognizing that to be successful in technical fields, individuals must also be creative and use critical thinking skills which are best developed through exposure to the arts. Our programs also emphasis the importance of building strong relationships through collaboration and teamwork.
Most schools consider our program an in-school Educational Field Trip with a nominal fee to parents. Students take home a permission slip to take part in the STEAMbuilding program. If parents cannot afford the participation fee, they can get a scholarship from us - no one is left out because they cannot afford the fee.
We motivate students to think creatively, collaborate effectively, and get excited about STEM/STEAM subjects.
The STEAMbuilding Workshops covers multiple Common Core Standards by getting students to think with their heads and their hands. But it's not just math and science. Students will experience several hands-on projects and experiments during the course of the workshop which will enhance communication skills and collaboration through discussions and problem-solving with their peers.
Children are natural-born scientists and engineers. We strive to make each learning experience relevant, fun and engaging for each student and to cultivate each child’s natural gift for exploration and experimentation. The STEAMbuilding program will spark an eagerness to learn that can help them move ahead and excel in STEM fields.
Here is a sampling of our projects. While we have categorized them, there is a great deal of crossover between subjects.
- Learn about Curcuits
- Augmented Reality Sandbox
- Scratch Programming
- Hour of Code
- Build a better Skyscraper
- Rocket Design
- Design Engineering
- Website Design
- Build a Roller Coaster
- Make Perspective Box
- Blow Geometric Bubbles
This summer we are offering workshops through the after-school programs.
