STEAMboat Studio Homeschool Program

Engage your child's mind in our project-based STEAM homeschool programs in Maple Valley, WA.

STEAM Academy

At STEAMboat Studio, science class just got a whole lot more fun!

Our STEAM Academy program is not your average boring lecture-style class. Instead, we offer hands-on, project-based learning that encourages creativity and critical thinking through Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics.

STEAM Academy is designed to bring science to life for students in grades Kindergarten through eight. With our exciting curriculum, your child will become a lifelong learner who is constantly investigating, exploring, and thinking critically about the world around them.

    Step 3: Watch Your Child Develop a Love of Science

    From their first STEAM Academy class, your child will begin developing a love of science that they can carry through the rest of their education.

Why STEAMboat Studio?

Research shows that kids learn best with hands-on projects and activities instead of lectures and silent listening. Combining science with creativity enables students to grasp complex scientific concepts, establishing a foundational understanding they can build upon in their homeschool science studies.

Teaching science in your homeschool program can be prep and material heavy, while online homeschool programs don't offer the hands-on experiences students need. At STEAMboat Studio, we take the hassle out of home science lessons by providing all necessary supplies and working with energetic, skilled instructors with science backgrounds.

Your child will discover the wonder of science through cool experiments and broken-down concepts they can understand.
