MySTEM Academy provides a unique path where kids learn and apply STEM, preparing them to become future innovators and leader.


Our project-based, hands-on programs allow kids to work collaboratively to solve challenges related to real-world problems. We offer summer camps, after-school classes, and robotics clubs for kids 6-14 years old focused on robotics and programming. With 11 years of experience mentoring robotics teams to participate in regional and international events, our students have won several prestigious international awards and scholarships.
