Creativity and critical thinking are at the crux of innovation, and innovation is happening at lightspeed! We're preparing students for the future with 21st century skills by creating educational programs to fuel curiosity and confidence in youth, building foundation skills in science, technology, engineering, art/design and math, contextualized to their communities and unique life experiences.
Our mission is to educate, equip and empower learners to imagine and create the future through play, ingenuity, and innovation, using science, technology, engineering, art/design, and math (STEAM). We're focused on the future and helping students learn the essential skills and competencies required to excel.
Our programs help students to think critically about science and technology, have equitable access to it, and can use technology to solve real world challenges. From learning to paint large scale street art murals to coding new applications, our programs encourage students to think critically to create solutions that improve their communities and make the world better for others.
Makers are the future. They invent new and innovative solutions, fix what is broken, and inspire the next generation to be creators, not just consumers. Whether virtual or at the Centre, our programs introduce learners to a huge library of hand-tools and emerging technologies, including professional audio and video production equipment, wood-working, leather-working and metal-working tools, 3D printers, CNC, Epilog laser cutter, Cricut machines, graphic design tablets, and more still to come!
There are many ways to be creative; you can make art, make cabinets, make robots, and more! At STEAM Centre, we have you covered.
Location & Hours
The STEAM Leaders Program provides the perfect environment to foster independent learning. I was able to take home an arduino with the challenge of making it play music and to start learning about coding and circuits. The STEAM Centre has many amazing technologies to learn about and use: 3d printers, a laser cutter, and a CNC machine. One future career I am considering is mechatronics engineering. Many of the skills and technologies overlap, which provides the perfect opportunity to learn about engineering and to gain a head start in developing some of the skills needed to become an engineer.
