PreS-PreK In-House Field Trips and K-5 Residencies

Our In-House Field Trips and Student Residencies are project-based hands-on fun. Each of our lessons has a literacy component such as a great children’s book that our STEAM activity is based upon. For example: Iggy Peck, Architect by Andrea Beatty will be the focus of our engineering challenge for your learners that day!

The link between early childhood and STEAM is indisputable. Early exposure to STEAM—whether it be in school, at a museum, a library, or just engaging in the natural trial and error of play-supports children’s overall academic growth, develops early critical thinking and reasoning skills, and enhances later interest in STEAM study and careers. (JD Chesloff’s editorial Sparking a Child’s Interest in Science and Technology).

You were amazing and you explained concepts in their Pre-K language which is a talent. You simplified some pretty complicated topics for my little ones, and "popped a few eyes out" (not literally( in amazement. Please come back next year. Thanks for your knowledge and expertise. I was amazed…you made my eyes pop out too!”
