STEM Center USA inspires the next generation of STEM leaders by developing a passion for STEM careers at a young age and maintaining interest throughout middle and high school. We provide students with an experiential education that excites, engages, and enriches through a unique, learn-by-doing curriculum.
We believe that true learning takes place when a student is allowed to discover the underlying principles through a hands-on, experiential, learning model. By providing opportunities to be engaged in a learning process that excites, energizes, and exposes them to a wide variety of skills and concepts, STEM Center students will discover a path that will enable them to have a more productive education.
"I am the principal at TIPS South Hill Academy in West Covina, and this is our second year with STEM Center USA. Their specialized robotics program has inspired our students to make connections involving different subjects of study as it integrates mathematics, electronics, computer technology, science, engineering, and the developing of programming skills. Our students are motivated and excited to learn by creating their own robotics devices, while at the same time they are gaining a deeper understanding in the application of these different areas of study. Their excellent staff instructs our students, as they work in teams, through a guided discovery approach as they learn by doing which creates learning and stimulates problem solving. In addition, it develops communication skills within their team members. We have experienced withdrawn students that have been on the side lines of learning, become fully engaged and involved students, respected team leaders, confident and willing to volunteer, when given opportunity, to teach others what they have learned.
