a youth STEM club created by professional educators, engineers + designers

FUEL YOUR CHILD’S PASSION FOR MAKING.

Craft projects and worksheets only go so far in developing our budding engineers. And sometimes, additional expertise is required to help our kids gain a deeper understanding of topics that interest them.

FAQS

We've found the 5th-8th graders tend to have some of these topics incorporated in their other class work and it isn't as new and exciting to them. However, we have included kids outside the "geared toward" age range by parent request before, so please talk to us about your situation.

We hope to offer “STEM Day” activities that your school, PTO, or scout group could use to host a local event. All the materials and instructions come in the box. All you’d need are some volunteers to run the stations. Then invite all your friends for plenty of tinkering fun!

Please let us know! We’d like to work with your family so your child can focus, understand the activity, and have fun making.

Yes, no problem! This just happens to be our community, so we’re starting here, but we welcome families from other schools at any of the locations. Look for sessions at Merton, and more info to follow about possibly North Lake, Stone Bank and Richmond schools.

THANK YOU for being so excited about our project. Occasionally we've needed a parent to assist during a session. We appreciate your offers and will be in touch.

No problem – Our best pricing is for the combo packs offered at Merton, however, feel free to choose the modules that work for your schedule and interest.

Scholarship information available for families enrolled in the free/reduced lunch program. When you add two or more modules to your cart, you should see a sibling discount at checkout.

Absolutely! Download an editable pdf CERTIFICATE yourself, or let us know at checkout and we’ll make sure your special student knows about your fantastic gift! Be sure to save it to your desktop first before you fill it out. We’ll need the child’s parent to sign a permission slip, but we can help you with all the final details.
