Helping Your Child Develop a Love for STEAM Fields

STEAM is science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.  Our mission at NextGen SmartyPants is to inspire kids and help foster a curiosity for learning.  As Engineers, Scientists, and Teachers ourselves, we love designing, building, and creating new things.  Our programs are coordinated with Connecticut area schools to complement in-school learning and provide students a context for applying the math skills they learn in the classroom.  And our goal is to share our enthusiasm for learning with your child to help them see that they can do amazing things too!

Why NextGen SmartyPants?

NextGen SmartyPants is passionate about what we do. We dedicated time to create a customized curriculum that is directly applicable to what your child is learning in school. This customized curriculum allows your child to take what they have learned in school and apply it in hands-on experiments and engineering.

Each of our CT STEM classes is taught by an experienced, dedicated instructor. All of our instructors have previous classroom experience, and most have higher degrees. We know that early exposure to the world of engineering can have a lasting impact on children. We work to help your child become familiar with and learn to love math, engineering, science and more.
