MN STEM Brainstorm Labs

Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) is offering the mn Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) Program as a summer academic enrichment opportunity. This educational program is for elementary and middle school students who want to get ahead in Math and Science. In this program, CAE combine lectures, projects and experiments to support learning, improve their math and science skills, and better the chances for success in numerous fields and also meet the demands of our future work force.

We bring hours of fun projects and experiments to captivate children’s interest. As each Jr. Engineer/Scientist grabs their lab coat on the way in, the STEM adventure begins, allowing them to discover and engage in their learning. They dissect, explore, build and explode.
 
Engaging hands-on Engineering projects, and activities like Quizzes, Math Puzzles, and Interactive Science Bowl formatted competitions, create an enriching opportunity for the students. The sessions keep your child’s math skills sharp during the summer break through daily practice drills. Using design and pattern association techniques, puzzles and games, students are taught to apply concepts.  They will also learn how to code, create, and run programs using up-to-date child friendly programing tools including MIT’s graphical programming language and projects from code.org*. This program gives students a leg-up in their problem solving skills which are essential for their MAP/standardized tests.

We are sure, after the program, students will return home transformed and energized to learn more of Science, Engineering, Computers Science and Math. We invite your child to take advantage of this one of a kind summer learning experience.
 
*No previous programming skills are required to learn the nuances of computer sciences. Students are recommended to bring their own iPads/Laptops. Material fee included.
