It is more important than ever for students to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve challenging problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information. These types of skills are learned by the opportunity to study S.T.E.M.
This expansion of the tutoring program is a specialized summer curriculum based on educational activities- Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. During this time the children are challenged to work on projects that fall within the specific areas of study to learn and have fun at the same time.
The objective is to provide exciting and challenging learning opportunities that evoke problem-solving skills across the four disciplines, to incorporate both long and short-term outcomes.
The inquire portion of S.T.E.M. tasks involves areas of science and math, while the design portion relies on technology and engineering principles.
Our goal is to give all children the opportunity to be college and career ready to be competitive in a modern S.T.E.M. economy.
Our Summer Reading Program takes place in June and lasts one week, for four hours per day.
