What is steamoji?

A place for children to create
a sense of meaning and
master future-facing skills.

Steamoji is a STEM maker academy for kids aged 5-14 that
trains builders, makers, inventors and entrepreneurs.

Skill pathways

A new learning experience.

Technological change is accelerating. Many parents recognize STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) are fundamental in preparing their children for the careers of the future, but see schools more focused on traditional studies. Steamoji’s 400-hour curriculum is designed to fill the gap in a structured and reinforcing fashion across each subject pathway. Students are taught basic skills, then encouraged to practically apply them in the spirit of “Build to Solve™”.

Why steamoji Works

Steamoji students will be ahead of the curve by gaining essential skills for the 21st-century while learning how to tackle their generation’s global challenges.

While there are other camps introducing STEAM concepts, there is no other 
structured program like Steamoji which takes an elementary school child through
400 hours of reinforcing projects over a 5-year time period.

A CONFIDENT, CAN DO MINDSET

Exposing children to new technology skills helps give them confidence to tackle new challenges. An open mindset is encouraged to always try, adapt and try again.

GUIDANCE FROM SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS

Subject matter experts demonstrate and provide guidance on developing foundational skills. Facilitators supervise to help overcome any challenges.

Real skills your child will use

The focus is on teaching foundational skills, then encouraging apprentices to imagine, create and improve their own solutions.

Lightbulb Moment: Making a 3D Printed Lamp

Availability

0 spots left

Suggested Age

8 - 14

It’s time for bright ideas! In this camp, Apprentices will work with key STEAM skills to create their own RGB lamp. Using a combination of coding, 3D modeling, 3D printing, and circuit-building, they’ll plan, design, and build a creation straight out of their imagination. During this camp, they’ll take their builds all the way from a pen-and-paper concept to a fully functional light feature, which they can proudly bring home at the end of the week. Let’s get building!

STEAM Goes Medieval: Creating Castles & Catapults

Availability

1 spot left

Suggested Age

5 - 7

Incoming! In this camp, Apprentices will become engineers as they work in teams to build the strongest catapult and tallest tower that they can. To conquer the challenge, they'll learn about levers and mechanical advantage, building techniques and balance. As well as becoming masterful engineers, they’ll tap into their creative side and make colorful birds and mascots to launch from the catapult. On the last day, teams will face off to try and knock down their opponents' towers before their tower is tumbled, too!

Carnival of Creativity: Digital Storytelling and Fabrication

Availability

1 spot left

Suggested Age

5 - 7

Start with an idea, awaken it on the screen, and then bring it to life right in front of you. Digital storytelling meets fabrication in this camp, which taps into kids’ creativity across the entire STEAM spectrum. From sports to entertainment, apprentices will start each day with a new theme and follow their imaginations through a series of activities. They’ll use digital art skills and coding to create characters and stories in Scratch Jr., a visual programming language that gives kids their first taste of coding. From there, they’ll bring these characters into the real-world using principles of fabrication. Building mini games to designing graphics – it’s all about sparking ideas and using STEAM principles to tell stories. Come and find the exciting worlds that are waiting to be discovered in your imagination!

Arduino in Action: Build, Code, Move!

2 spots left

Suggested Age

8 - 14

Start with your brainpower and finish with a bang! In this physical computing camp, apprentices combine coding with a series of other STEM activities to bring their programming skills into action!

It’s all about connecting the digital world and the real world. The goal? Create a motion-sensor machine that can launch an object, play a game or simply say “hello”. To get there, apprentices will learn to code an Arduino microcontroller, and connect it to a device they’ve built using electrical engineering and fabrication skills. Come and see how far your skills can go – literally!

Marble Run Madness: Design and Engineer

Availability

6 spots left

Suggested Age

8 - 14

Loops! Jumps! Hair-pin bends! What's the most exciting roller coaster you can imagine? Now come and come build it. In this camp, apprentices join a team of like-minded engineers to dream up, design and construct a twisty downhill run. They'll turn cardboard, paper, straws and other household materials into a roller coaster... for marbles! Apprentices will learn every step of the design process as they research, prototype, test and assemble their marble run. By the end of the week they'll have built a fascinating, gravity-defying structure, that combines creativity with their new engineering skills. Let's Get Building!

The Art of Games: Plan, Make, Play

Availability

5 spots left

Suggested Age

5 - 7

Art history meets game strategy in this camp. Steamoji Junior Apprentices (ages 5-7) will invent and build their own art-inspired mini-games, merging artistic skills with critical thinking to combine the gallery with the game world. Every day is a creative bonanza where their imaginations set the scene and game design brings the structure, resulting in a collection of fun games that they’ve plotted and crafted themselves. From pens and markers to sculpting and LED lights, Apprentices will use classic and contemporary design principles as a springboard for their own unique artwork. It’s a place where math and art meet up to make magic. So – who’s ready to play?!
