Not everyone has an equal opportunity to fully learn and appreciate the world of STEAM. The education in elementary, middle, and high schools for the vast field of tech and tech-related fields, such as computer science, information technology, data science, and so on, is very limited and low-level despite its growing prevalence in our lives today.
We offer students free opportunities in STEAM for all students of all backgrounds of expertise, whether if you are just starting out with programming to if you just want to keep up your math skills over the summer.
