STEM Classes & Camps for Kids & Adults

There are many classes and afterschool programs that a kid can take where they may not be as into it as you’d want them to be. At NextGen SmartyPants, we want that to change with our interactive Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math based activities, otherwise known as STEAM. We customize our sessions depending on the age group so they can start learning as early as age 3. We want to help Bristol, CT children realize their passions for STEAM activities through our curriculum. 

Give us a call today if you want to schedule a class or want to know more about what we have.

Our Teaching Methodology for STEM Education

We are parents, teachers and engineers who are working daily to inspire and educate kids under our tutelage. We want to help children of all ages find a subject they are interested in, and learn the knowledge that could help them achieve future goals in STEAM. 

With our teaching methodology in place, we’re able to help students feel more comfortable with new subjects and gain a keen interest in the field of science and technology. With our STEAM classes and programs, students can foster natural curiosity and self-motivation to become problem solvers and gain more confidence in their work, both independently and in groups.

The school year can be busy for a kid, however, so we also offer summer camp programs for Bristol so they can stay more engaged throughout the summer. We can give students a program they will remember by allowing them to explore some of our subjects in-depth, whether they are crafting their first sculpture or tinkering with a robot they helped design. We have classes for many different age groups: Junior (4-7), Beginner (7+), Intermediate (10+) and Advanced programs (13+) are all available at your disposal. For any kids that want stimulation while learning a new skill at the same time, they can check out our camp schedules today.

STEM/STEAM Education Programs

Teacher Training


NextGen Smartypants serving Bristol uses hands-on learning in order to get kids more exicted about the projects that they will be taking on at our program. We tailor the program to the age that they are, so high school kids won’t feel babied by a beginner program and littler kids won’t be as intimidated by the big projects we have. NextGen SmartyPants can help ensure a future for your kids that they have a lifelong commitment to STEAM.

Team Building Event


STEAM programs are sometimes seen as something just for kids, as adults are typically set in their ways with hobbies and work they do. However, some adults may be looking for a new interest or want to explore another skill in their life, and that’s why we offer courses for Bristol adults who want to learn more about STEAM programs. NextGen SmartyPants want to help you find your newest passion and help you thrive in your environment. Click to learn more about our adult classes.


You or a child may be wondering what STEAM and STEM can do for you, and that’s okay. We have several camps, classes and birthday parties at NextGen SmartyPants for children and adults.
