NextGen SmartyPants is built on the foundation of extending the knowledge and skills of our students. We encourage all those interested in science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) to engage in the learning opportunities offered through our STEAM-based classes and camps. 

Through our hands-on learning opportunities, our students are able to explore, grow and gain confidence in technology related subjects. Regardless of age and experience level, there are a number of different courses available at NextGen. We also offer courses specifically for adults as well as education professionals looking to bring STEAM-based curriculum into the classroom.

We offer camps over the summer and fall holidays for any child or adult that wants to keep pursuing STEAM away from their Avon school. We offer many programs in Robotics, Coding, Engineering and LEGO building at our facility, among others. We have four tiers of programming for our camps: Junior programs (ages 4-7), Beginner programs (7+), Intermediate programs (10+) and Advanced programs (13+).
