Unleash Curiosity and Creativity in Your Child with Mathnasium's STEAM Activities this Summer!


We are thrilled to introduce our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) Activities program, taking education to new heights. Our engaging and collaborative activities foster a love for learning and tackling challenges for your child!

At Mathnasium, we believe active participation is key to effective learning. Our STEAM Activities will offer hands-on exploration, bridging theory and practice. Our series of STEAM Activities will have children diving into interactive projects that nurture critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Our activities value teamwork and collaboration as essential skills. Through group work, children learn to communicate, cooperate, and appreciate diverse perspectives. Collaborative projects encourage creativity, instill confidence, and promote meaningful contributions toward shared goals.

Additionally, Mathnasium's STEAM Activities complement traditional math tutoring, providing a well-rounded education. Students see how math applies in fields like engineering and technology, enhancing their mathematical proficiency and sparking a lifelong passion for learning.


Mathnasium STEAM Activities, Dates, and Times:

Ciphers and Cryptography - 6/22 - 12:30pm - 2pm

Cryptography is the study and practice of writing and solving codes. Students will learn the basics of cryptography by learning how to encrypt and decrypt messages using three different ciphers: the Pigpen Cipher, the Caesar Cipher, and the Vigenère Cipher.

Build a House for Ace - 7/6 - 12:30pm - 2pm

This activity is designed to give students an opportunity to explore measurement, engineering, construction, and careful planning. Each student will be given materials and an incomplete set of instructions to create a house for Ace, plus a completed example. They will use their rulers and reasoning skills to figure out what the missing measurements and instructions should be.

Spaghetti Tower - 7/20 - 12:30pm - 2pm

Students will construct a tower as tall as possible only using spaghetti and tape. Then, they will place one marshmallow on top of the tower. The tallest unassisted tower that supports the marshmallow wins.

Tessellation Art - 8/3 - 12:30pm - 2pm

Tessellation is a topic in geometry that asks, "How can we cover a surface in a pattern of polygons so that there are no gaps or overlaps?" In this activity, students will learn about regular tessellations—patterns made of only one polygon— and make art out of tessellating tiles they design themselves.

Make a Kite - 8/20 - 4pm - 5pm

Students will build a pyramid kite from scratch using tissue paper, straws, and string. Younger students will need kite templates pre-made and help tying knots, while older students will create their own templates and build the entire kite themselves.
