For those interested in STEAM education, NextGen SmartyPants is your resource for classes and programs focused on science and technology. At our studio we promote the use of hands-on learning, giving our students the tools and resources needed to work independently and successfully in groups. 

Our STEAM programs strive to inspire joy in the areas of STEM/STEAM and to create a culture that fosters imagination and innovation. We want to prepare our students for an effective involvement into the society of technology regardless of age or skill level.
