We believe instilling a lifelong love for learning starts early. Instructors play a key role in our student's experiences as they introduce them to new content, build relationships, encourage them to troubleshoot, and inspire them to stay curious and creative.
Being a part of the STEM Center USA team carries responsibility and opportunity. In exposing young students to hands-on STEM experiences and helping them exercise their creativity & critical thinking skills, we set them up with the skills they need to succeed in and move our world forever.
We've developed a strong team of highly trained STEM instructors. Our team is focused on developing students, fostering a positive environment, and serving as a role model for your child. All STEM Center USA instructors are trained in our teaching pedagogy, relevant course materials, and classroom/camp management.
