      EVENT DETAILS
      Kids Summer Camp on Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM)

      A fun summer camp for kids, age group 6-10, which help them to understand STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) concepts at an early age. Our motto is to make learning fun. Through our workshops, young ones not only get to think out of the box but also get to make new friends.

      In our workshops, children get hands-on experience in conducting experiments, deducing results & learning from those results. By exposing children to STEM and giving them opportunities to explore STEM-related concepts, they develop a passion for it and begin to love schoolwork.

      Our summer camp promotes developing not just STEM but also social and collaboration skills, hence we do not allow parents or guardians to be in the classroom while the workshop is in session, however, we are a tiny homegrown company and these workshops take place in our humble abode so the caretakers are welcome to wait in the living room for the duration of the class.

      Though, we have a certificate distribution for the children at the end of the last class where we would love it if the parents could join us and be a part of seeing their children receive it.

      Dates: 6th April to 11th April

      Timing: 10 am to 12 pm every day
