What We Do

Since 2021, we have provided a great resource for families as they embark on their science, technology, and math journeys.  Families, afterschool programs, and entire communities are able to receive free STEM Read-Alouds, a STEM teaching guide for toddlers, and 7-week SEL and culturally-proficient STEM experiences.  Children and families are greeted with passionate and knowledgeable science explorations ranging from energy cycles, the states of matter, physics of engineering, and ecological habitats.  Here, families who are not able to afford STEM camps, or afterschool programs strengthen their appreciation for STEM.

We believe in the entire family as a learning unit.  Accessibility to STEM involves more than a field trip.  We believe in providing experiences that unite all aspects of learning all sciences and integration of  social-emotional and cultural aspects of STEM and STEAM.
