What is the difference between STEM4Kids Camps and other LEGO Robotics and programming Camps?

At STEM4kids, we work on Kids with “Critical Thinking, Problem-solving, Designing Projects and Communicating Ideas” Because We want our students – boys, and girls – to enter middle and high school wanting to sign up for classes in robotics, programming, physics, or electronics.  Our Curriculum is STEM-based focusing on key elements, and we believe that learning must be: 

   - Engaging

   - Relevant 

   - Hands-On 

   - Creative

We are not a franchisee, we work with a very small number of kids to make sure every child gets personal attention.


My child has experience with robotics. Will your program still be challenging?

Absolutely! Our STEM-based curriculum stretches from Beginner to Master. We start from the basics and advance to the master level with your kids, by making sure, Kids are engaged and not losing interest.  We inspire the engineers of tomorrow, we get into advanced mechanisms including gear trains and linkages, and Explore and understand the science behind it. We will be proud when they say “Yay! I did it!” or “Wow! So that’s how it works!”


Is every week of our Summer Camp the same?

Well, yes and no! At STEM4Kids we have a unique and in-depth progressive project-based curriculum. Kids will be moving to the next level each week. At the start of each week, the teacher analyzes the kid's level and teaches everything necessary for a beginning or advanced student to the next level to complete the coursework.  Kids work at their own pace, and we are always doing new projects, and something similar to karate belts as they achieve advancement to new levels. Thus, from week to week, campers are always doing something new and engaging!


Does my child get to keep the Lego education kit?

Unfortunately, the Lego education kits are for classroom use only.


Does my child need to have any programming or robotic experience to enroll in this robotics engineering camp?

No, this camp curriculum is designed for students from beginner level to advanced level. Students with no experience will be given an introduction to both robotics & and programming.


Do students get to take home their computer work?

Yes, students take home the majority of their computer and iPad® projects on a CD.


What if a camp needs to be canceled due to low enrollment?

In the unlikely event that a camp needs to be canceled, we will provide a full refund of tuition or allow a transfer to another STEM4kids camp, if space is available.


What is your refund/cancellation policy for Summer Camps?

STEM4Kids may cancel programs if a minimum enrollment has not been achieved. In the event a program is canceled, all enrollment fees will be returned. If a family wishes to cancel an enrollment before May 10th, a $25 processing fee per camp will be charged, and the remaining fees returned. For requests after May 10th and at least three weeks before the first day of the camp, a cancellation fee of 25% will be charged, and the remaining fees returned. We are sorry, but there are no refunds given for Summer Camps within 3 weeks of the start of a camp.
