Nature At The Confluence is excited to be the host location for STEM for Kids programs this summer. STEM for Kids provides educational enrichment in Robotics, Engineering and Computer Programming for children in grades K – 8 (elementary and middle school) through camps, after-school programs, in-school field trips and STEM workshops.

They are also offering a FREE Science Behind Weather and Natural Disasters program, Saturday June 15th 1:00pm-3:00pm. In this interactive program participants will do some fun weather related activities, build and program robotic earthquake simulators and test buildings they designed and built.

Donna Curtis is the owner and instructor, and she makes her STEM programs fun and real. She has taught STEM related subjects to children K-8 for multiple years in both public and private settings as well as college level students. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education as well as a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction of Mathematics K-14.

Donna says, “My experience has lead me to understand the significance of teaching children from a young age to think creatively, work collaboratively, communicate effectively and think critically. Through research, I discovered the vast need in the world for students who are prepared to fill the ever expanding job market in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. STEM for Kids brings the two ideas together by providing a place for children to expand their understanding of the STEM fields while having fun and gaining exposure to real world application. I am excited about bringing the world of hands-on STEM as camps, after-school and in school programs in our community.”
