STEM Workshops

Brain STEM clubs teach students creative & critical thinking and problem-solving skills, through hands-on experience. We believe in active learning. In our after-school clubs, students will play, think, and learn as they explore a new topic each week with unique in-class builds and experiments.

Clubs run one day per week. We attempt to schedule all classes in line with the host school's calendar, skipping holidays and half-days accordingly.

Class sizes are limited to 25 students. This limitation helps create a better learning atmosphere for the kids. Our standard minimum class size is 12 students.

AZ DPS Fingerprint Clearance Cards
