Many parents are looking for STEAM Education programs recognizing their importance. STEAM Education is often called: "A 21st Century Approach to Learning". At The Renaissance Child, we understand the importance of it as well. But we wanted to go a little bit further and host a STEAM Club! Our STEAM Club is for the kids who love science and would like to be a part of an innovative and inspiring community! Our goal is to teach students through project-based learning how to combine each of the five disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) and foster an inclusive learning environment in which all kids are able to engage and contribute. Through this innovative approach, students are able to exercise both sides of their brain at once. Each year kids participate in our STEAM Camps, events, and competitions.
