CREATIVITY

We put an “A” in STEAM

STEAM embraces the intersection of Arts with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

Students learn new forms of expression that tap into imagination and support a range of academic skills from Mathematics & Technology to Language & Visual Arts.

Workshops spark both left & right brain development, i.e. creative problem solving – a valuable skill in today’s world.

RELEVANCE

Match curriculum outcomes

Using the latest software programs & games to teach, we keep students engaged engaged & learning.

Mathematical and computational ideas are graphically portrayed and embedded in each step.

Students are applying concepts in meaningful and often in real-world ways. They are developing a deep level of fluency with digital technology!

DIVERSE SKILLS

For different learning styles

Small group learning enables us to respond to diverse learning needs.

Our programs can be modified to serve different interest groups: e.g. special needs students, autistic or gifted students can all benefit from our responsive approach to learning.

Inherent in our approach is the importance to balance individual learning with group based collaboration for optimal results.
