About STEAM Education:



In recent years, the United States has received significant criticism regarding the lack of scientific thinking skills and knowledge in our children. In spite of this criticism, many school districts continue to downplay the importance of science education in the early elementary years. Research tells us that STEAM education is critical for both boys and girls. Our summer camps are strategically designed to appeal to both boys and girls as they help children develop and strengthen their scientific thinking and build a strong foundation for future science learning. Our camp curriculum supports and enhances young children’s learning through quality activities that expose children to new concepts/ideas and encourage girls and boys to use their developing skills in a variety of creative ways.
