    Hands-on STEM programs engage kids in creative, conceptual problem solving that bridges the gap between theory and practice.

  • CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY.

    From Game-Based Learning using Minecraft to LEGO robotic systems, to Makeblock electronic circuitry, technology plays a key role in every course.
