The Technical Alphabet
Reinventing the ABCs!
Introducing children to technology in a fun, educational way! Reading begins with story time - so should technology literacy. Check out our latest project that is LIVE on Kickstarter now!
The Next Great Tool for Learning Arduino Robotics!
The Pi-Bot is a uniquely designed (and affordable!) complete robot kit for anyone interested in building and programming robots!
Perfect hands-on learning platform for both students and professional engineers
We engineered the Pi-Bot from the ground up through several design cycles to optimize function while staying affordable. We continue to work with students to make our designs appealing, and work with experts in the area of robotics to improve our designs.
We are so excited to present our "Technical Alphabet"!
Technology Literacy starts with the ABCs
Let's set up our new generation with the the tools they need to grow up with a better understanding of science and technology. The Technical Alphabet is a powerful tool to introduce young minds to the technology around them.
Meet Diego, Age 13
Future Scientist and Engineer
My favorite part of STEM is building my own robot and getting that feeling of achievement when you see your robot complete the task that you specified.
Meet Zaina, Age 13
Future Business Leader!
My favorite part of STEM is competing. I love working towards a goal in robotics, and building a robot and watching it perform is a fun learning experience.
SCIENCE + TECHNOLOGY + MATH + ENGINEERING
STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. According to the United States National Research Council and the National Science Foundation, STEM fields are collectively considered core technological underpinnings of an advanced society. The term STEM is increasingly used in the context of a nation’s economic competitiveness. Thus STEM education not only addresses the demand for scientists and engineers but also is a key component of responsible, global citizenship.
Design, build, and program robots of all sorts of shapes, sizes, and complexity! Creativity is key and FUN is a must - through our "timeline of robotic education", students will develop their building and programming skills as well as touch on all subjects, teamwork, and presentation skills. Some of our popular robotics platforms include: FISCHERTEKNIK energy & automations, LEGO Mindstorms NXT & EV3, Conductive Clay/Squishy Circuits, VEX, Lego WeDo and Mechanisms, and Creative Robotics with HUMMINGBIRD.
Rote memorization and rules are not just boring, but they don't allow for "true learning". Through our Guided-Discovery learning model, learning becomes an experience in which making mistakes are an integral part of the learning process. Students get to re-invent and go through their own "ah-ha!" moments.
Founded in sunny Southern California, the STEM Center is based in Pomona but we are rapidly growing and offer programs internationally too! Visit our Pomona center and call for information so we can even bring the program to you school! We have weekly classes at our Pomona center and also offer personal camps and workshops.
