Our Teaching Methodology for STEM Education

Our team is made up of passionate teachers, engineers and parents who want nothing more than to educate young minds and adults looking to gain a new hobby or skill. We are dedicated to inspiring our students in the exploration of science, technology, engineering, art or math (STEAM). Our educators believe that through hands-on learning and independence, students can gain a lifelong curiosity and find a sense of self-expression and inspiration to continue on. 

In a tech-driven society, it’s important for those with an interest in science or technology to engage in concepts that help them not only succeed in life but gain confidence at their own pace. We can help students achieve this through a variety of STEM/STEAM classes, camps, after school programs and resources for professionals looking to get a leg up in the world of technology.

For Simsbury kids who may not feel as engaged being on a sports team or are wanting to explore a new passion over the summer or winter break, we offer several camp programs to engage them in the world of STEAM. LEGO building, robotics, coding and engineering are just a few of the subjects we cover in our camps, which are divided into various age groups. We offer programs at a Junior (ages 4-7), Beginner (7+), Intermediate (10+) and Advanced (13+) level so any student can feel the same type of engagement they need. Check out the camp schedules that we offer so your child or you can learn and have fun while doing it.

STEM/STEAM Education Programs

Teacher Training


NextGen SmartyPants provides Simsbury kids with a fun and creative outlet for them to explore their interests in the STEAM program. We have a hands-on approach to learning, where kids will be able to create several different projects based on the skill level and age of those involved. If your child feels like growing into a new skill or hobby after school or over the summer, NextGen SmartyPants may be the answer for them.

Team Building Event


Adult classes are also offered through NextGen SmartyPants, for anyone who feels they may want to start a new hobby or potentially explore a new career. Like our programs for children, we want to engage and stimulate the adults who are using our facility to broaden their horizons and find other subjects in their life they are skilled at. If you are interested in learning about STEAM and having fun while doing it, you should check out our adult classes today!


STEAM classes can help your child expand their mind, or can be used to help an adult reignite a passion for learning. NextGen SmartyPants provides Simsbury residents afterschool programs, summer camps and birthday parties where learning and fun are both intertwined.
