Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) education emphasizes preparing future generations to succeed in their careers. The focus on hands-on learning with real-world applications helps develop a variety of skill sets, including essential literacy skills, sequencing, engineering design principles, and cause-and-effect relationships. When implemented appropriately, STEAM experiences in early childhood settings teach children more than science and mathematics concepts. Children exposed to STEAM education build essential 21st-century skills, including technological literacy, productivity, social skills, communication, flexibility, problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity, curiosity, decision making, leadership, entrepreneurship, and more.
Programs at S.T.E.A.M. Champs
Here at S.T.E.A.M. Champs, we prioritize the learning journey of our students. We developed a unique S.T.E.A.M. curriculum that integrates computational thinking with a champion mindset, or in other words, a growth mindset – the belief that hard work and determination can provide you with endless opportunities. We do this by offering advanced, creative, and joyous S.T.E.M. classes, events, camps, and field trips to children 6-12 years old. Families can choose to register for different programs, ranging in commitment from a single course to a classpack, offered both online and in-person in Brooklyn.
Our sessions are tailor-made to maximize every student’s learning potential. Students are enrolled in group coding classes based on their current level and age and are moved up when they show they have mastered the current material. On weekends, S.T.E.A.M. Champs Coding Academy holds regularly scheduled community events such as Family LEGO® build, LEGO® tournaments, and free Chess classes for all levels and ages. During the summer, S.T.E.A.M. Champs offers steam camps, providing the most advanced, fun daily activities for your kid.
