Our mission is to provide a fun and friendly environment where children can learn, experiment, and create.


We offer after-school, summer camps, and weekend programs for kids 4-14 years old rooted in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) including robotics and computer programming.


Created by an engineer and a former faculty from Carnegie Mellon University, MySTEM Academy has trained over 2,000 children in the past seven years through several K-8 schools in Pittsburgh.

Learn more about our 2017 Winter Programs:

  • Build Cool Robotics with Lego EV3 (grades 3 and 4) at Winchester Thurston
  • Lego WeDo 2.0 and Lego EV3 Robotics after school programs (grades 2 to 5)
    Contact McKnight and Ingomar Elementary Schools for after school program registration

Summer Camp registration starts in February 2017. 


See below some of the programs offered in 2016.

Lego Robotics WeDo 2.0

This program introduces young students to the world of robotics. Students will build several projects using Lego motors, sensors and parts, and use an intuitive drag-and-drop software to program their models to move. Students will collaborate with friends while gaining skills in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Coding and Programming

We use several interactive website tools to teach kids basic programming language concepts. Students exercise logic and problem-solving abilities while expressing and sharing their ideas and creativity. Programming is as simple as stacking blocks of code, making the coding language accessible to beginners and advanced programmers alike.

Lego Robotics EV3

Students use the Lego Mindstorms EV3 elements to build and program robots to solve a series of challenges. They learn fundamentals of programming blocks such as loops, conditional operations, and variables; and use motors and sensors to navigate and play games. Lessons cover topics in computer science, technology, engineering, and math.

Video Game Design

Students create their own world with characters, backgrounds, and sounds, and use the built-in functions to add movements and create fun games. In this process, they exercise analytical thinking, problem solving skills, and learn how to use programming blocks to unleash their creativity.

VEX IQ Robotics

This program engages middle school students in science, technology, engineering, and math. They build and program with VEX IQ robots to solve a series of challenge games. Students learn how to program using fundamentals of RobotC,a C-based programming language.
Register for January 2017 session at Winchester Thruston.

JavaScript Programming

This program introduces middle school students to the fundamental skills of computer programming: variables, arrays, conditional statements, loops, and functions. Students will learn how to write code to create games such as Hangman.

"We are happy to have such high quality programs

for kids here in Pittsburgh. Highly recommended!"

Robin Shoop, Director, Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy

We make every effort to always provide our customers with the best value and quality services.

Growing a New Generation

MySTEM Academy was created in 2010 (GreenE Academy)  by Maria Yamanaka (Master's degree in Engineering from CMU) and Marcel Bergerman (former faculty at the CMU Robotics Institute). They strongly believe children should learn Computer Programming and Robotics in early childhood, to be ready for a future when logical thinking and system-oriented design will be key to a successful career. This is why the MySTEM Academy has been creating new programs to reach younger audiences every year.

MySTEM Academy students have received several awards in Robotics and Programming. Our solid experience in the STEM field and successful track record make us a trusted education service provider and partner.
