Saturday STEM Academy

The Saturday STEM Academy provides 7th and 8th grade students the opportunity to further develop their interests in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in an unparalleled, educationally stimulating series of course offerings. The Fall sessions theme will focus on 'simple machines' coding and bio-anthropology. Our projects and activities will explore these simple machines and how there are multiple solutions to every problem. Students will learn to code via object oriented programming. Our bio-anthropology students will analyze and study the evolution of humans and how they utilized simple machines in their everyday lives. This program provides students with project-based activities that reinforce discovery, critical thinking, creativity, innovation and collaboration. The courses are offered at Passaic County Technical Institute from October 7th to October 28th , 9:00am to 12:00pm. Join us in these hands-on courses where students learn teamwork, problem solving skills, and increase their self-confidence! Classes run from October 7th to October 28th, 9:00am to 12:00pm. Payment of $90 per course is required for registration.
