Super Tech Engineers Program (S.T.E.P.)

S.T.E.P. is designed to be a once-a-week program for 6-12 year olds, combining basic educational support with a science and technology-based instructional offering. The program, offered during Academic Year, is divided into two sessions of ten weeks each (S.T.E.P. 1 and S.T.E.P. 2) and each week would involved a specific science and tech-themed learning experience; from the principles behind building structures like bridges and snow fortresses to examining the forces of nature and the science that surrounds us every day. The Key principle is to put theory into practice by applying what we learn each day into the play-based activities incorporated into the program.
