GET A HEAD START

We want to help solve this problem by providing kids in Southern Utah with above average, hands-on, STEM learning experiences. Kids in our community can acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to fill the coming shortage of workers in STEM fields in our very own backyard. Because technology often outpaces the STEM curriculum taught in schools, kids can get get ahead by learning these skills sooner than in a traditional classroom in our STEM based camps taught by our talented and tech-savvy instructors.

THE FUN STARTS HERE!

Summer camps and after-school programs in science, math, biology, geology, mechanical engineering, coding, and much more! All ages and skill levels!
