Welcome to STEAM by MAX!

Fall 2019 registration is now open. Our first 6 week session, STEAM Essentials, runs September 28th through November 6th.  Scroll down and click the links below to enroll. And stay tuned for more information regarding our upcoming programming for the remainder of Fall 2019.

MAX is incredibly excited to be the first organization to bring a year-round, progressive STEAM program to our community! STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Without realizing it, children engage with STEAM concepts every day. Natural explorers and experimenters, they are drawn to figuring out how things work and learning to do things for themselves. That innate tendency towards discovery is the very reason why children absolutely love taking part in STEAM programming. While we adults realize they’re gaining valuable knowledge and skills, to them it’s pure hands-on fun.

At STEAM by MAX, our end goal is enrichment; children walk away knowing more about a topic, but also the world around them. And perhaps they’ll even discover a lifelong passion!

The Curriculum

Thanks to our franchise agreement with US-based company STEM for Kids®, we are able to offer hundreds of hours of unique learning developed by experts in both their subject manner and in creating fun, age-appropriate lesson plans. This incredible volume of material means we’ll be offering lots of options throughout the year, and your child will never get bored or have to repeat a module – unless they want to of course! The curriculum is progressive, meaning as children learn foundational concepts, they’ll have the opportunity to continue to build and go deeper into particular subject areas.

We think STEAM programming is amazing for all kids. Which is why we’ll be offering a number of ways to take it in including:

    • Weekly classes. Children attend for one hour per week, progressively working on the same topic for multiple weeks.
    • Themed birthday parties. Children will have one hour of a super fun STEAM-based learning with their friends, then carry on with the more typical birthday party activities.
    • Summer camp. Children will have a week of STEAM programming balanced with lots of games, activities, and outdoor play.
    • Events. Our STEAM team is available to visit schools, community groups, teams, and more!

Fall 2019 – Register For STEAM Essentials

MAX is excited to introduce our first program called STEAM Essentials, designed to give your child a hands-on introduction to a variety of STEAM topics. From engineering and robotics to biomedical and programming (coding), we’ve got something for everyone! With a focus on fun and creativity, your child will get exposure to what the world of STEAM has to offer. We’re also pleased to introduce our Little Scientists program specifically tailored for kindergartners.

STEAM Essentials is a 6 week crash course in STEAM covering:

  • Engineering design process. Planning and testing your design is critical. Your child will learn how to problem solve and think like an engineer.
  • Inertia. Stop! Go! Your child will learn about the Laws of Motion.
  • Robotics. Your child will be introduced to the fundamentals of computer programming and get to build and learn using Lego robotics kits.
  • Prosthetics. The world of medicine consists of more than just doctors and nurses. Your child will learn about the role of technology in medicine.

Date: 6 weeks/1 session per week running from September 28th through November 6th
Price: Kindergarten $119 + HST
Price: Grades 1 to 6 $149 + HST
