Our Teaching Methodology for STEM Education

NextGen SmartyPants is a team made up of passionate engineers, teachers and parents. We are dedicated to inspiring children and adults in their exploration of science, technology, engineering, art, and Math (STEAM). We provide our students with the right foundation necessary to explore, grow and gain confidence at their own pace.

Through our teaching methodology, our goal is to have our students feel comfortable even in uncertainty. We want to help them develop fluency in science and engineering concepts while fostering natural curiosity and self-motivation to solve problems independently.
