From Parents

“I can’t say enough about what STEM Minds has done for my kids. STEM Minds has provided a fun hands-on environment for my kids to learn about robotics, coding, VR, etc; basically, the future of tech and employment. The education system needs to catch up to what STEM Minds is providing!” – Tom I

“Challenging, supportive and fun environment! STEM Minds is constantly changing their programming to stay current and relevant. Staff have education backgrounds and can support all abilities and kids with exceptionalities! Our kids have been attending since the first day they opened their doors – they love it!” – Jill M

“STEM Minds is a place where curiosity and creatively is encouraged. From graphic design, 3D printing, Cad design and video game design, STEM Minds covers a variety of programs and gets kids thinking about what is possible and that there is no limit on what they can do. My son has shared details of the programs with engineers in our family and they are blown away by what he has learned with TinkerCad and how he is thinking about engineering & design. Aurora is a better place with an organization like STEM Minds in it – I would highly recommend their programs to anyone.” – Sarah H

From Teachers

“We had a fantastic experience with STEM Minds and are hoping to have them back at some point. Students loved the BeeBots and the apps. Their interest was sustained and it was a great exploration of a different type of thinking.” – Miragalia, YCDSB

“Absolutely thrilled with the engagement of my class during the EV3 Robotics session through Stem Minds. The students were dialed in from the first minute and followed along through initial simple instructions to extend their understanding of coding with growing independence. The instructors were energetic and knowledgeable, and the students really enjoyed working with them. An absolute homerun for cooperative learning, student engagement, and exposure to STEM opportunities.” – Jay, YRDSB

“It looked like a great morning was planned for our STEM Student leaders! The students were fully engaged in the tasks you had planned. I’m looking forward to seeing the students take the lead in our Primary classes! Thank you for all of your hard work this year. Also, thank you for your flexibility throughout the school year, in terms of dates, and the planning of the specific program each time to meet our needs. It has been wonderful to work STEM Minds!” – Anonymous, YCDSB
