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 opportunity 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 different modules throughout the year. Each module features a kit full of materials, components integral to the module’s activities, and other cool STEM and space-related items. The modules are aligned with national STEM standards to reinforce and enhance what students are learning in traditional classroom settings. Modules also align with scouting merit badge requirements so those involved in scouting can benefit further.
Each module features on-demand learning with flexible schedules; consisting of live video instruction/discussion with our experienced STEM Education Specialist, pre-recorded sessions, asynchronous exploration, and collaborative work sessions with other students. Career awareness is an important facet of each module and students will be introduced to potential careers and benefit from interviews/discussions with professionals from those fields.
