  • About

    We are a STEAM educational enrichment program, providing workshops for kids ages 4-14 and also for adults as teambuilding workshos. Each workshops teaches STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) fundamentals, crosscurricular topics (history, geography, literature, pop culture...) and also 21st Century Skills for success, such as teamwork, creativity, critical thinking and communications. We do this by having students work in small groups ("tribes") of 4-6 students to solve engineering challenges we present to them. Each tribe creates their own solution, and then presents it to the rest of the class to share their successes and to reflect on their learning.

    Workshops are available either in-person or virtually, and sessions are held at your site - we come to you, and we bring all the materials needed for each session. We have over 400 hours of material to choose from, to align with any curriculum and most any theme you can imagine. Sample "islands" of themes include world travel, time travel, wizardry, entrepreneurship, slime, superheroes, mythology and much more. Classes are available as afterschool programs, summer camps, in-school or in-camp field trips, birthday parties and also for corporate teambuilding events. We also offer badge and journey workshops for all Girl Scout levels, covering much of their STEM-focused curriculum, including Think Like an Engineer, Mechanical Engineering Triple Badge, Automotive Design & Engineering, and much more.
