Learn how NextGen SmartyPants' STEAM Classes inspire children and adults alike to develop a love for learning.
We are passionate about helping kids to bring out their best! We are experienced teachers, educators, engineers, scientists, and parents. We are committed to using our award-winning STEAM curriculum to inspire their curiosity and foster their enthusiasm to want to learn more.
NextGen SmartyPants's mission is to provide every child the ability to experience high-quality STEAM education, regardless of socio-economic status. We keep our prices affordable for most families and obtain grants and donations to expand this reach to as many families as possible. We further increase the accessibility of our programs with teachers that travel to area schools, rather than require students to travel to our location. Finally, we offer these programs via both Live In-Person and Live Distance Learning formats.Enroll now
