STEM and STEAM classes (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) are some of the most important for our children, but sometimes they need to give it a little more work than they do at school.
Fortunately, there are a bunch of great STEM programs in the Atlantic County area of New Jersey.
iD Tech offers a range of STEM programs throughout the summer at prestigious locations across New Jersey. iD Tech teaches children to push boundaries and learn about the Tech and gaming industries. If your child is interested in going into a tech or game development field, these programs will look great on their college applications. Kids over 10 will find the courses most fulfilling, as they are mostly aimed at middle and high school kids.
International Ivy is another summer program for kids who love learning about science. International Ivy promotes creativity and practical learning for children from 3-15, in a range of subjects, such as Robotics, Video Game Creation, Engineering, Math, Minecraft and more. They have a range of locations across New Jersey for half- or full-day attendance.
Snapology in Atlantic County offers kids a way to learn in a way they already love: with toys. Snapology offers year-round programs where your child can use Lego, K’Nex and various forms of technology to teach them skills like Robotics, Movie-Making, and Video Game Design. As an added bonus, they organize scouting events, anti-bullying programs, workshops, and field trips.
When children come to Snapology they truly don’t know it’s educational, and we’re not going to tell them!
Sylvan Learning has locations all over NJ where your child can go to have tons of fun learning coding, building robots, and other STEM activities. They are encouraged to use teamwork to plan, build and problem solve. It’s a great way to encourage friendships and collaboration. They’ll continue to grow and challenge your child from grade 1 through to grade 8.
