NextGen SmartyPants is a passionate team who is here to help you and your child learn about the wonderful world of STEAM. Kids and adults who enter our facility can take comfort in that we are working to foster their natural curiosity so they can become more fluid in science, engineering and more. We offer several STEAM classes, camps, after school programs and even assistance for professionals in the field so you can enter the world with a renewed confidence in yourself. We allow students to work at their own pace so they are not overwhelmed with the amount of information we give them.

STEAM Programs We Offer

We offer STEAM courses so your child can learn in a fun environment that will be constantly working to challenge them in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. We make sure that Granby residents will be getting the most out of our program, whether they come to a class after school or if they stop at our studio in Canton. Our programs are designed to progress as you age, so children who are overwhelmed by personal finance and robotics may feel more at home with LEGO building and coding before they move on.

In addition to the classes we offer throughout the year, we also offer many STEAM-related camps that are heavily focused on the subject at hand. Granby children will be able to spend weeks overlooking Robotics, Coding, Engineering and more in a structured environment looked over by our instructors. We provide hands-on experience for these children so they are more likely to be interested in STEAM projects in the future.
