Middle School Age STEAM Classes

Once they have reached a stage where they are ready to engage in a more instructor-guided experience, our middle school aged students are ready for extra challenges.​

We utilize a project based approach with these older students. It is a student-centered, yet instructor-guided, approach where participants gain a deeper understanding of subjects through hands-on projects, active exploration, and real-world problem-solving and challenges.​

Many themes will be explored: from robotics, to Mars exploration, to giant numbers, to human body systems. No matter the theme, our older Thrivers are engaged, challenged and presented with new information and ideas.​

As always, there is plenty of time for socialization and making friends during this time of life when cultivating friendship is so important.
