Educators mentor students to develop foundational capacities prerequisite to all STEM learning, like spatial reasoning, problem-solving, and symbolization. While many students learn these fluencies at home, this phase helps fill in critical gaps that may exist, especially for underserved students.
Grades 2nd - 5th
Students jump into the shoes of real engineers as they explore mechanical and structural engineering, applied mathematics, and coding and robotics. Throughout the program, students learn new STEM concepts and then apply what they have learned through creative invention challenges. Ultimately, these experiences help students develop a lasting interest in STEM.
Grades 6th - 8th
Students build upon their experiences from the elementary programs as they explore structural and mechanical engineering, physics, rapid prototyping and 3D printing, and coding and robotics. These experiences give students the skills and confidence to persist in STEM throughout their lives.
