What We Do

We make kids excited about STEM learning, which is key to getting them into STEM careers. Our programs allow students to further their science knowledge in a setting where they can experience it as a collaborative and creative process that has immense relevance to our daily lives. The afterschool setting allows for hands-on longer-term project-based activities that build upon and reinforce concepts learned in school without feeling like more school time. In addition, it provides a venue in which children and youth can experiment and play with STEM concepts and projects without fear of failure. As we know, science and engineering projects do not follow a linear process and do not have pre-determined answers. It is very important that students learn to ask questions, learn how to apply the knowledge they gain in school, and be persistent when success is not immediately forthcoming.
