STEAMboat Studio’s STEAM Academy program is an educational approach to learning using Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics as points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The end result is students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. Our hands-on approach allows students to explore a variety of science and technology concepts through innovative projects, experiments, and activities designed to excite and engage students and encourage further exploration at home.

STEAM Academy for ages 11+ is designed to provide additional challenge for more advanced students, incorporating more data collection and analysis while maintaining our engaging hands-on approach to learning. Younger students may enroll at parents' discretion. To be successful in this class, we recommend that students have experience with the following math concepts:

  • Averages
  • Exponents
  • Decimals and place value (tenths, hundredths, thousandths, etc.)
  • Rounding
