In 2013 we started STEAM as a non-profit 501(c)3 organization committed to empowering children from underserved communities with a high-quality STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art integration, and math) education. We believe investing in our children, providing the right resources in the right way, can make all the difference for their future.
Successful integration into the 21st-century workforce requires intellectual curiosity, creativity, along with problem-solving and communications skills. The STEAM Generation awakens these attributes in the children we work with and puts them on a firm path to goal achievement and success.
We’ll introduce them to exciting hands-on technology and science enrichment that will boost their self-confidence, help them discover talents and skills in the STEAM fields, and qualify for the high-paying, fast-growing jobs of the 21st century economy. Our curriculum also helps children close critical education gaps and improve their social mobility.
Out of school time programming provides access to new and enriching experiences yields lasting developmental benefits.
To advance the Pre-K through 8th grade education experience by providing innovative, out-of-school time STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art integration, and math) programs and outreach to students.
We believe the hands-on, innovative learning environment of the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art integration, and math) curriculum will maximize the potential of our students from underserved communities, to ensure they are prepared to meet today’s challenges and make the most of tomorrow’s opportunities.
How are our programs different?
Three principles drive our success:
FOCUS ON INNOVATIVE THINKING:
Our engineering-based teaching encourages our students to find unique pathways to problem solving by integrating arts into STEM curricula, which leads to enhanced innovation and better outcomes.
LEARN BY DOING:
Our programs help students explore the STEAM world through hands-on experiments and investigations that fully engage them in each class.
We structure our classes in small groups to encourage collaboration and inclusivity among the students and work closely with each of them to ensure progress and personal growth.
