Our Teaching Methodology for STEM Education

At NextGen SmartyPants, every child and adult has the opportunity to explore, create and learn at our studio in Canton, CT. With a hands-on approach and room for growth, our students can build the necessary skills to become life-long learners, and informed future leaders.

With our STEAM classes open to all ages, we hope to inspire Farmington residents with creative and meaningful experiences with technology. We aim to provide accessible community-based programs that change the way we see science and technology and how it fits into our lives. Our educators also promote the need for independence and self-motivation to solve problems.

STEAM Programs We Offer

NextGen SmartyPants offers many different courses in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math that can broaden the subjects someone may face in their academics. Kids as young as three can take a course with us, but it’s never too late for an adult to learn about STEM through our adult classes. In our afterschool programs, we have weekly STEAM education classes in Farmington schools or at our studio. We have classes in subjects like 3D printing, circuits, coding, LEGO building, personal finance and robotics.

Farmington children who need more engagement from their summer than other kids may want to try our STEAM camps. With robotics, coding, engineering and other programs available for various age groups, you’ll find the activity that will work just right for your child. We offer Junior (ages 4-7), Beginner (7+), Intermediate (10+) and Advanced programs (13+) over the summer for your kids to enjoy. For kids who want to have fun over the summer while also learning skills that make them think more critically about the world, check out our camp schedule today.

STEM/STEAM Education Programs

Teacher Training


NextGen SmartyPants uses hands-on learning to enhance the projects that your child will handle. For Farmington children of all ages, we work to create a program that will stimulate their minds and keep them actively involved in the process. Elementary schoolers, middle schoolers and high schoolers all have different needs and the programs we have can help ensure that your future little engineer is prepared for the world ahead of them.

Team Building Event


It’s never too late to learn something new, which is why we offer STEAM programs for adults. These classes aren’t just for kids, but can help adults find a new passion in life or just a hobby that can kill time while they stay at home doing nothing. Farmington residents who want to learn more about technology or just need to enrich their lives with something a little off the beaten path can check out the adult classes that NextGen SmartyPants has to offer.


Whether you just want to throw a party with us or want to enroll your child in the STEAM classes/camps we have available, you should reach out to NextGen SmartyPants to see what we have to offer. STEAM is not meant just for children of Farmington, but anyone of all ages who has an interest. Find out what’s in store for you by checking out our catalogue!
