STEMtastics

Program overview

The STEMtastics program is a once-monthly class that introduces science topics to young children to encourage their natural curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world around them. Now more than ever, employers are looking for people strongly skilled in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It is never too soon to foster your child’s growing love of learning for science and math than right now. If your little scientist is 4-7 years-old, please join us for STEMtastics!

Eligibility and Guidelines

The STEMtastics program includes in-person class time and is currently only offered to students in the Austin area. Applicants must be at least 4 years old to be considered. Please note that this is NOT a drop-off class. Since our class members are so young, we ask that parents remain on-site.
