Boston STEM Lab: After school program

Boston STEM Lab is a hands-on program for children ages 3-6 and their caregivers. Through play, experimentation and model making students learn about science, technology, engineering and mathematics in a fun and intuitive way. In this program students experience collaborative work, project development and experimentation through engaging practical exercises.

**In-person & virtual options offered this Spring – In-person Summer Camp weeks just added!**  

Classes are instructed by Eugenia Rojas – a neuroscientist PhD (learn more about Eugenia)

Spring In-Person Outdoor Offerings:

  • Nature Around Us: April 28 – May 26

Ages: 3-6

Wednesdays 4:00-4:45

5 sessions

Tuition: $150

In this class our young scientists will explore living organisms through experimentation, play and the making of models. Students will plant seeds and observe them grow to full plants. We will also learn about insects as we make models, experiments and engineering design challenges.

  • Science-Art for Creative Minds: April 29 – May 27

Ages: 3-6

Thursdays 4:00-4:45

5 sessions

Tuition: $150

In this hands-on class students apply scientific techniques to create art. We extract natural pigments; create secret messages, fluorescent paintings and more!

In case of inclement weather we will extend the session as needed. Please note that all fees are strictly non-transferable and non-refundable.  Should COVID or other extenuating circumstances require us to cease in-person sessions, we will transition to virtual learning; fees are not refundable in those circumstances.

Spring Virtual Offerings

  • Math, problem solving and pre-coding: April 26 – June 21. No class on 05/31.

Ages: 3-6

Mondays 3:45-4:30 (EST)

8 sessions

Tuition: $144

 In this class students perform experiments, make models and play games as they develop mathematical thinking and problem solving skills. The introduction to numbers, quantities, patterns, data collection, plotting, pre-coding and others are presented with an experimental approach. This class is fun and engaging.

  • The Atom: April 26- June 7. No class on 05/31.

Ages 6-9

Mondays 4:30- 5:15 (EST)

6 sessions

Tuition: $108

In this virtual STEM Lab students are introduced to the structure of the atom, elements, molecules and chemical reactions. We make models and do fun experiments.  It’s a great hands-on experience!

  • Matter Around Us: April 27 – June 1

Ages: 3-6

Tuesdays 3:45-4:30 (EST)

6 sessions

Tuition: $108

In this class our young scientists will explore the physical characteristics of some elements. Particularly, we will focus on the transitions of water to study the different states of matter. All together, through fun experimentation, and science-art activities students will discover a part of the sciences of physics and chemistry. 

STEM Outdoor Summer Camp (new!):

Dr. Eugenia Rojas together with a wonderful STEM teacher assistant will lead the camp each week. Our summer STEM camps are hands-on and play/inquiry based. All STEM materials are provided. Max 10 campers.

  • Week 1: The Senses (July 6- July 9)

2:30 PM – 5:00 PM

Ages 3.5-6

Tuition: $325

In this program campers explore their senses through experimentation, play, science-art activities and engineering design. We make natural perfume, design “better” ears, make a magnifier glass with water and more. Campers bring their projects home!

  • Week 2: Nature around us (July 12- July 16)

2:30 PM – 5:00 PM

Ages 3.5-6

Tuition: $375

In this program campers explore living organisms through experimentation, play and the making of models. Campers will plant seeds and observe them grow to full plants and study insects. They will use dissection microscopes, make leaf prints, and design a bug’s hotel. Campers bring their projects home!

  • Week 3: Science-Art For Creative Minds (July 19- July 23)

 2:30 PM – 5:00 PM

Ages 3.5-6

Tuition: $375

In this program campers create science-art exploring new fun techniques. They do experiments, extract natural pigments to make their own watercolors, create secret messages, fluorescent paintings and more. Campers bring their projects home!

  • Week 4: Engineering Design Challenges: Water projects (July 26 – July 30)

2:30 PM – 5:00 PM

Ages 3.5-6

Tuition: $375

What’s more fun in the summer than playing with water? In this program campers do science experiments and engineering design challenges with water. They make a water filter, build boats and submarines, experiment with soap bubbles and more. Campers bring their projects home!
