⚙️Hybrid Program

Join us for a year-long learning journey in our themed Clubs that allow students to build expertise in a skill vertical, earn micro-credentials issued by Digital Promise.  All clubs get access to our award winning online learning platform “STEAM Hub” at no additional cost so learning can continue at home.

Our clubs focus on:

  • Purpose driven learning
  • Focus on foundational to deep development
  • Project based learning
  • Progressive growth with exposure to variety of tools

The Robotics Club is designed to provide students with an opportunity to explore the field of robotics and develop their skills and knowledge in this exciting area. Through a series of interactive and engaging activities, students will learn how to design, build, and program their own robots, and how to compete in robotics competitions.

The mechatronics component of the program is designed to provide students with an interdisciplinary education in mechanics, electronics, and computer control systems. Through a series of hands-on activities, students will learn how to design, build, and program complex mechatronic systems, such as robots, drones, and automated manufacturing systems. The 12+ Club will focus on the First Technology Challenge competition and will be part of STEM Minds community team to compete. For more details: CLICK HERE: FTC

At the end of the year, if students are enrolled in the full 3 terms, they will earn a micro-credential endorsed by Digital Promise. The badge will be issued and can be included in student portfolio.
