Frequently asked questions

What you mean by Progressive curriculum week by week?


STEM4kids follows progressive camps between the weeks, which are an in-depth pair of courses that build upon student knowledge week after week. The curriculum is more flexible and is influenced by student individual skills and strengths. Which allows us to individualize lessons, customize the learning experience and offer plenty of personalized, one-on-one time for each student.

How many weeks of camp can students take in the summer?


Students can register for as many weeks of camp as they would like. As we are progressive camps, which means student will advance to further levels as student masters the concepts. We encourage you to register for at least two week, its build the strong fundamental on the subject. And as per student experience, you can add more weeks (depends on availability of slots)




If a student already has some experience, are different skill levels accommodated in the course?
