Connect 2 STEM
Connect 2 STEM is designed to assist parents during this time of virtual learning. Connect 2 STEM is not a school and our staff are not certified teachers, but we are dedicated to providing your child with a safe and fun environment to connect to their virtual classrooms while also engaging in hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) learning throughout the day.
Our classes will be held on a Monday/Wednesday OR Tuesday/Thursday basis to be paired with school A/B schedules. We will also offer a late pick-up option each week. Masks are recommended for students ages 10 and up. Our staff will be wearing masks. Spaces are limited and pre-registration is required. Hours for Connect 2 STEM are from 7:45 am to 3:45 pm (late pickup at 5:45 pm is available for an additional fee).

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, our leadership has looked at our Fall 2020 season from every perspective, and we believe that we can still offer a safe experience for your children.
While we cannot offer zero risk of exposure to others, we can limit exposure by decreasing some of our program sizes and implementing safety protocols to take every precaution possible.
