VSFA is excited to announce the launch of the new STEM Academy this summer. The STEM Academy will provide students with high-quality learning experiences at home. The Academy will be geared towards students in grades 3 through 8*, but the potential to expand that range is on our radar. It is not merely an extension of our established summer camp program but also an additional learning opportunity for those interested in STEM.
The STEM Academy offers different modules throughout the year. As students complete modules, they will be launching their STEM literacy and competency to new heights. Each module features a kit full of materials, components integral to the module’s activities, and other cool STEM and space-related items. These modules are aligned with national STEM standards to reinforce and enhance what they are learning in traditional settings. Modules also align with scouting merit badge requirements so those involved in scouting can benefit further.
Each module will feature live video instruction/discussion with our experienced STEM Education Specialist, pre-recorded sessions, asynchronous exploration, and collaborative work sessions with other students. Students and parents will have ample two-way communication with our staff using our online platform. Each module will also focus on careers associated with the theme and include interviews with professionals from related fields.
