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


We offer summer camp, after-school, and weekend programs for kids 8-14 years old rooted in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) including robotics and computer programming.


We also coach FIRST LEGO League (FLL), FIRST LEGO League Jr. (FLL Jr.), and FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) teams to participate in regional and international events.


Created by an engineer and a former faculty from Carnegie Mellon University, MySTEM Academy has trained over 2,500 children in the past eight years through several K-8 schools in Pittsburgh.

"We are happy to have such high quality programs

for kids here in Pittsburgh. Highly recommended!"

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

Growing a New Generation

MySTEM Academy was created in 2010 (originally as GreenE Academy)  by Maria Yamanaka (Masters 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 at an early age to be ready for a future when logical thinking and system-oriented design will be key to a successful career. This is why 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.
