We bring our makerspace to you! In our innovative STEAM outreach program, trained staff bring the excitement of hands-on, educational programs into your classroom, youth center, library or after-school program. Our approach to STEM includes an “A” in S.T.E.A.M.— by including the “A” (art) we incorporate creativity, design-thinking, and artistic skill — allowing students to bring their innovations to fruition. We have numerous challenges to choose from and each program meets Common Core State standards as well as Next Generation Science standards.

As part of our programs, we introduce students to various careers in STEM, but we also ensure that they appreciate that creativity and innovation are at the heart of careers in science, technology, engineering and math. At the outset of our programs, kids often are apprehensive about careers in STEM, which are viewed as too hard or not obtainable. After participating in our programs, most kids are interested in STEM careers or are inspired to learn more. We ensure your students know that these are not isolated career practices, but rather are careers filled creative minds who work collaboratively as critical thinkers, problem solvers and entrepreneurs.
