Doing Cool Things That Turn Ideas Into Reality

 

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Strong TIES offers an integrated approach to STEM engagement for community-building and increasing interest in STEM .   Our learning day camp is a creativity-based summer STEM education program for kids and teens where children can nurture their natural desire to inquire, create, and innovate.

Our STEM projects are changing the way we look at the problems around us. Through project-based and experiential learning, our children explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics using an integrated approach to learning. This program complements the learning experience by preparing the student to learn multiple ways to solve a problem and applying project-based learning.

OUR UNIQUENESS

Innovation, Play and Discovery. In our inquiry-based STEM program, students design their own answers to complex challenges.  We foster intensive, active, curiosity-driven learning.  Strong TIES camps use ImprovScience playful exercises to highlight key skills needed for STEM disciplines for teaching team building, a sense of acceptance, cooperation, and skills needed for collaborative efforts.

Engaging Topics, Hands-on Learning. We believe that children can understand big ideas and can be engaged in meaningful ways, using real tools, to solve problems they care about.  Our fun and engaging approach to STEM learning has shown to be effective igniting interest
