For Schools and Organizations
At STEM For Kids, our goal is to provide a fun learning environment for program participants. Brain research shows that fun is an important ingredient for learning and memory.
How do we do it?
Through our rigorous curriculum development and delivery process.
We have developed a wide array of kid-friendly curricula. Each of our program curriculum is conceived in a STEM practitioner’s mind. Curriculum development involves hours of testing the concept and its delivery with children subjects to ensure that the content is easy to understand, interesting and hands-on. Any activity that does not meet our criteria is vetted out.
Equally important is training of our STEM coaches. Coaches are trained on not just the content but also delivery methods.
Flexible Program Delivery
We provide custom STEM & STEAM activities. Enabled by our modularized proprietary curricula, we bring activities that fit your goals for in-school STEM enrichment.

Plus, participants’ experiences are further enriched by industry guest speakers and role models.
At STEM For Kids, we believe in hands-on enquiry-based activities with purposeful learning. Our curricula and programs align with educational standards.
- State Specific Science Standards
- Next Generation Science Standards
- Common Core Math and English Language Arts
- Information and Technology Standards

In School Field Trips - Workshops
We bring hands-on STEM to your students during the school day. These are grade level focused STEM workshops designed to extend students’ learning of science and math. Educators, the curricula is aligned with national and state standards.
The colors of STEM need the canvas of 4Cs to be effective.
What are the 4 Cs?
The skills of Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Creativity. These are the key skills needed for success and individual growth.
Our programs seamlessly incorporate the 4Cs to help participants explore the mechanisms of working and thriving in today’s work environments.
After School - Before School Programs
Per Afterschool Alliance, out of school STEM programs show positive outcomes in improving students’ attitude towards STEM careers, increasing their knowledge and skills, and providing a higher likelihood for graduation.
Bring a breadth of STEM programs to enrich your students’ learning before and after the school hours including Early Release Days. We work with mixed grade groups – convenience for you and parents as children can stay at school for these enrichment programs. We come to you. So, there is no cost to transport and it is easy for parents to pickup.
