VSFA’s STEM Academy provides students with high-quality learning experiences at home. The Academy is intended for students in grades 3 through 8, but those outside that range may also benefit. It is not merely an extension of our premier summer camp program, but it is an additional learning opportunity for those interested in STEM. It is a perfect program for homeschooled students, after-school groups*, those involved in scouting*, and anyone interested in STEM fields to launch their STEM literacy and competency to new heights.
The STEM Academy offers three modules: Explore the Cosmos (astronomy), Take to the Skies! (aerospace), and Mission: Possible – Robotic Exploration (robotics/coding). Each module features a kit full of materials including components integral to the module’s activities and other fun STEM-related items. The modules align with national STEM standards to reinforce and enhance what students learn in traditional classroom settings. Modules also align with scouting merit badge requirements so those involved in scouting can potentially earn merit badges.
Each module features on-demand learning with flexible schedules. The modules consist of a combination of live video instruction and discussion with our experienced STEM Education Specialist, pre-recorded sessions, asynchronous exploration, and collaborative work sessions with other students. Career awareness is an essential facet of each module. Students will be introduced to potential career paths and benefit from interviews and discussions with professionals from those fields.
