Online STEAM Club Description

STEAM Club (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) is for interested novices and talented artists alike!

STEAM (or STEM + Art) Club offers live online activities including an artistic or creative element, in addition to one or more of the traditional STEM subjects. For example, meetings could include creating art using STEM tools, or creating an engineering project where you take particular attention to aesthetics. It could be… any number of things really. The key is that it must cross the curriculum and encourage critical thinking skills in a meaningful way.

STEAM is a more engaging way to integrate and combine the concepts of science, technology, engineering, art, and math with a more hands-on approach.

STEM/STEAM is all about innovation, problem solving, and creativity!

Grade Levels

For middle school and high school students.

Family Membership

Membership is per family. However, each family will share the same login account.

Club Meetings

The club meets every other week on Tuesday at 6PM (ET) for 8 sessions per semester (see schedule below). The club is designed for middle school and high school homeschoolers.

Students will join the instructor live in Zoom and participate in hands-on STEAM projects along with the instructor and other students. Each meeting will consist of different themed activities, and there are assigned projects, build challenges, and research to be completed where students may receive incentives.
