STEM for Kids provides a number of after-school programs designed for children aged 5 to 11.
The programs available focus on the core STEM subjects and are designed to educate children in a fun and interactive way. STEM for Kids programs enrich and support learning in school.
A key focus of our work is in the promotion of the four C's:
- Communication: Developing the skills to get your meaning across and to effectively listen to others
- Collaboration: Working with others and performing better as a team or in pairs
- Critical Thinking: Developing the ability to look at things differently and see ways of improving on what has been done before
- Creativity: Using imagination to generate innovative and original ideas
After School Programs
The STEM for Kids after-school program can be customised for each school to help drive consistency and continuous learning. However, our most popular offering is based on the below 4 day after-school programs that typically start straight after the normal school day:
|Day of the week||Program Name||Program Length|
|Sunday||Taste of Engineering||10 x 45 minute classes|
|Monday||Robotics||10 x 45 minute classes|
|Tuesday||Computer Programming||10 x 45 minute classes|
|Wednesday||Website Design / Game Making Lab||10 x 45 minute classes|
We are currently partnering with schools for programs launching in September 2017. For more information, please complete the form on this page.
IN-SCHOOL FIELD TRIPS
In addition to our after school programs, we also offer In-School Field Trips and flexible programs that can be customised for every school.
In-school field trips are where we bring the STEM experience to you! Now you can have hands-on STEM workshops, projects, and investigation with your students, at your location, during the school day. STEM workshops are designed and offered for specific grades and levels. Students extend their learning of science and math.
Educators, the curricula can also help you discover your inner child, have fun, and learn some new skills.
The in-school trips allow you to run on-site STEM programs without the hassle of managing students' registrations or long arduous bus journeys. We bring the instructors, lots of energy, and the materials, including computers and robots, to your site.
