STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Our STEM education seeks to empower students in grades K-5 to explore their sense of wonder and imagination to solve real-world problems. During our STEM experiences students will learn to investigate, design, plan, create, evaluate, and communicate their work to each other and the community. We also teach students skills around digital citizenship and Google Suite applications.

STEM Exploration areas may include:

  • Digital Media (video, photo, graphic design)
  • Electronics
  • Coding
  • Product Design
  • Robotics
  • Simple Machines
  • 3D design and printing
  • Woodworking
  • Citizen Science
  • Hydroponics (Coming Soon at our Greenhouse)
