WHY CHOOSE THINKERS & MAKERS STEAM?
We are the only summer program of it's kind. Our motto is, we inspire and mentor young innovators. While many programs aim to mentor youth, most fail at inspiring them. This project started off with an inspiration and a passion to create something different. When our students participate in building hands-on projects we encourage them to embrace their differences. We don't want to see cookie cutter projects, we want them to tweak it and make it their own. This simple act allows them to think outside of the box. To see that they do not have to be like everyone else and that the same idea can be reached in many different ways.

Most importantly when we conduct our projects, whether it be creating an invention or coding, we always explore the why and the how. Many other programs just tell students, for example, to make a drawing art bot, but neglect to tell them why they are making it. What is the purpose? Who can it benefit and why do we use certain components? Can we use other tools to make it better? These are the questions that we ask and that is why each student leaves with more skills under their belt and a better understanding of what they did. This act inspires curiosity and encourages them to want to learn more.

Each project we create is well thought out and we ourselves are extremely excited to share these projects. It's almost like we are a kid in a candy store and the students can sense our excitement for each project.
