In 2013, we started The STEAM Generation 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. Now we’re the largest STEAM program in the area.
The world and workforce of tomorrow demand intellectual curiosity, creativity, and exceptional problem-solving and communication skills.
The STEAM Generation encourages these attributes in our students and puts them on a firm track to goal achievement and success.
We introduce them to exciting hands-on technology and science enrichment to boost their self-confidence, help them discover talents and skills, and set them on the path to qualify for high-paying, fast-growing jobs of the 21st-century economy.
We’ll build for the future with out-of-school-time programming which provides lasting developmental benefits, closes critical educational gaps, and improves our students’ social mobility.
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 students' 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:
Children (and adults too) learn by doing. We pack our classes full of hands-on experiments and investigations to actively engage learners.
Small-group learning is the cornerstone of every one of our programs. This inspires empathy, collaboration, and inclusiveness. STEAM is a team sport.
