We put the FUN in S.T.E.M. education by offering HANDS-ON LEARNING EXPERIENCES for children ages 4 to 14 through activities from designing and constructing rockets, foam and flub, bridges and an incredibly fast CO2 dragster to robotics, video game design and creating fun objects using LEGO® bricks. The variety of programming is extraordinary!
We are passionate about our programs because we believe that early exposure to STEM education has a lasting impact on a child's future.
The WNY STEM Hub has a vision that "WNY will be a thriving economic region whose innovative workforce and citizenry are created through interdisciplinary STEM collaboration." We couldn't agree more and are trying to help in creating those citizens at the youngest ages. Furthermore, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is on record as saying that a student's experience with STEM coursework has proven to be an important indicator for overall college readiness and post secondary success.
STEM education serves as the foundation for many of today's growing careers, such as media, medicine, biotechnology and engineering.
