Our mission is to encourage scholars (both boys & girls) to reach their full potential by providing stem focused hands-on interactive learning.
Our vision is to bridge the gap of enrollment in STEM fields. We aim to help teach children how to think, not what to think. To use their natural ability, creativity and energy to build, and create which is all part of STEM learning and STEM-related careers for the future.
Founded by a stem professional, turned public school educator. Stem Prep Academy is a preschool and stem enrichment center, which aims to equip scholars to learn through stem engagement. This will help them in STEM careers in the future. While bridging the gap in the skill shortage by producing a generation of free thinkers, who are tech- savvy and not afraid to go forward and be counted.
