What will be done at each session?
At each session, we will be helping kids develop their interests in the fields of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and Art through fun and engaging activities, discussions, and experiments. Each class is taught using a curriculum that has been fact-checked by adult high school teachers and updated every year.
Why did we create this virtual program?
In light of so many summer camps cancellations, we felt a responsibility to help students stay mentally active and feed their curiosity all summer long.
Am I (the parent) allowed to attend?
Yes, if you are uncomfortable with leaving your child alone, you are welcome to attend.
How much does this cost?
All of our programs and classes are completely free of cost. We believe that students of all socioeconomic backgrounds deserve to explore and be inspired in areas of STEAM. Financial factors should not limit any child from having an education in these valuable fields.
Who are we?
STEAM is a youth-led organization whose goal is to bring learning opportunities and resources to the children of underserved communities in the Bay Area.
What do we do?
Our team creates programs, classes, and activities that allow students to have fun and be challenged at the same time. Each week, we will focus on one or more of the STEAM principles to create engaging hands-on activities for our students.
Why STEAm vs STEM?
While the STEM movement has been a rapidly progressing initiative in schools throughout the Bay Area, STEM is limited to only science, technology, engineering and math. STEAM takes STEM to the next level by building a bridge between learning and creativity. There are no more limitations and STEAM allows students to connect their learning in critical areas together with arts practices, elements, design principles, and standards to provide the whole pallet of learning at their disposal.
Where are our classes located?
Our organization is based in Mountain View and run by Mountain View High School students. However, since our program is online, it is available to students all around the Bay Area.
