Frequently asked questions
What you mean by Progressive curriculum week by week?
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?
Instructors and TAs are always willing to modify and customize the curriculum to make sure that all students are engaged and challenged. The first day or so will be utilized to gauge students’ individual skills and strengths. We also have advanced extensions for every course, so teachers can challenge advanced students.
How many weeks do students normally register for?
STEM4kids offers progressive curriculum between the weeks. Normally students register for minimum two weeks camp on particular subject in order to experience our Academies, which are an in-depth pair of courses that build upon student knowledge week after week. Then student can either continue to choose to work on Advance course on same subject or try our other amazing camps for well balanced approach.
What if the content is too easy or too hard once the course begins?
STEM4kids courses and curricula are built to accommodate a wide range of ages and abilities. This, along with a very skilled instructional staff and low student-to-staff ratio (average of 12:1), allows us to individualize lessons, customize the learning experience and offer plenty of personalized, one-on-one time for each student. If you have a particular goal or project idea, instructors will work with you and guide you to help you achieve it.
