What We Do
We focus on providing opportunities for students to gain exposure and experiences while promoting collaborative engagement with high expectations for their success!! We encourage innovation to engage students in their desired STREAM discipline and innovate solutions to real world problems in their communities.
This program provides an opportunity for students to be engaged in STREAM demonstrations in a library geared towards 3rd – 8th grade students.Once a week, a live 1-hour STREAM demonstration is held at a local library.
STREAM Saturdays provides an enrichment that is entirely hands-on across each discipline of STREAM for 3rd – 6th grade students. It is held in the summer in partnership with a community’s Recreation or Community Center.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
“Don’t let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It’s your place in the world; it’s your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live.”
-Mae Jemison, Astronaut, Doctor and Much More
