Our Teaching Methodology for STEM Education

Even if your child isn’t destined to become an engineer or mathematician, STEAM/STEM education is increasingly valued by educators for its ability to foster creative approaches to problem-solving and skill-building. Best of all, these enrichment classes emphasize fun, so kids needn’t worry that a class in, say, robotics or coding is just “more school.”

STEAM Programs We Offer

It is clear that young people with competency in the STEAM disciplines are more likely to prosper both in their lives and in their careers. Today’s young people are already finding that more and more jobs require proficiency in STEAM disciplines. Our schools need to make sure they’re prepared. Our STEAM/STEM classes prepare our kids and adults all while at their own pace.

Team Building Event


An emphasis has been put on childhood STEM education that many people in the earlier generations did not experience. With technology constantly advancing, it is a necessity in order to prepare children for their futures and possible STEM careers. Enhancing knowledge on STEM skills can benefit adults in a variety of different ways. It will allow them to be able to better mentor children on the topics and be involved in a variety of youth STEM programs. It can also have major benefits on the individual’s health. With the right approach, adults can learn new STEM material just as effectively and efficiently as children can. It is never too late and no one is ever too old to expand their knowledge on something that is so prevalent in today’s society- such as STEM.  Get started with NextGen SmartyPants offering STEM/STEAM classes for adults.
