every kid is a scientist.
Kids are naturally curious. They ask questions. They investigate. They experiment. And then, somewhere along the way, they stop. We want to keep that curiosity alive, to keep them asking questions and looking for answers, and to help them understand the world around them. By offering opportunities to explore science topics in new ways, we hope to offer a lifelong love and understanding of science.
STEM Launcher classes are designed and taught by a certified Chemistry teacher and mom with over two decades of experience in the high school and college classrooms, science after school programs, private science tutoring, and public science education.
STEM Launcher classes are perfect for homeschool families, unschool families, virtual school families, and traditional school families looking for science enrichment classes. You can choose live online classes or flexible schedule classes where you can learn at a time that best fits YOUR schedule!
