STEM for GRandparents

An introductory workshop for Grandparents to learn all about the newest trend in education that everyone is talking about: STEM and STEAM! Much more than just an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math!

Group discussion and hands-on activities are designed to engage seniors in the latest craze.  Can be taught as a one-off class,  but more fun as a 4-6 block or ongoing series of workshops with new STEM topics introduced each week. Fun for family bonding time when the participants team up with their grandchildren for design building challenges. 

 

*Can be for parents, aunts, uncles, and mentors too. Anyone that wants a hands-on lesson in STEM just like all the cool kids are doing in schools today! We do recommend the introductory class be for the adults only if this is their first exposure to STEM education.
