But what you may not know is that we offer other useful, STEM-centric learning opportunities as well. From professional development to STEM school day sessions, read up on some of the many ways we can foster and encourage STEM learning in your school or organization!

STEM Curriculum Development
If you’re a classroom teacher or administrator, you’re likely well aware of the ubiquitous push towards STEM/STEAM-based learning. Still, for many teachers, this can be overwhelming. Questions like "Where do I begin?" or "How do I integrate technology into my already existing curriculum" abound. That’s where we can help! Transdisciplinary teaching styles are how we roll, and with knowledgeable STEM professionals at the helm, we can help you achieve a more tech-oriented classroom. Best of all, we offer consultation at every level, from leadership training, faculty workshops and even personalized, collaborative STEM-curriculum design at the individual grade level. We’ll work within your preferences and demographics (class size, access to technology) and help you seamlessly blend your existing curriculum with STEM-based activities and lessons to supplement the process.
STEAMPunks EDU Day Sessions
While the aforementioned After School Programs and Day Camps are definitely a hit, did you know STEAMPunksEDU will also come teach STEM enrichment classes during the school day? You bet we will. Working within your existing curriculum, we offer numerous STEM enrichment courses for students to take that will supplement what they’re already learning at school! Take our STEM enrichment classes at Goshen Elementary where we took students through a 5 day course learning the ins and outs of 3D printing and the iterative process, then had them design (and race!) actual rubber band race cars. (Video Here). We’re not just for after school, STEM learning can happen at any time! Contact us now to schedule a STEM enrichment day session!
