Acera STEAM Learning Lab
Registration is now open for the Acera STEAM Learning Lab, our educational enrichment and community outreach program for students ages 7-15. With emphases on critical thought, creative problem solving, and integration of content areas, our programs inspire all types of learners and thinkers. Students discover engineering, biotechnology, math, arts, theater, design, electronics, music, chemistry, physics, teamwork, friendships — and who they are: as individuals, learners, and collaborators.
Coming Soon! Weekend Programs
Why should kids have all the fun? At Acera, we believe that engaging STEAM experiences should be accessible to all. That children can understand complex ideas, and that grownups enjoy tinkering and learning new things as much as children do.
This Fall, we are offering new Weekend Programs where parents and children can roll up their sleeves and step into the Science Lab, the SEEDs Lab, or the MakerSpace to tinker, build, engineer and learn together. Stay tuned. Information about our weekend programs will be posted in early September.
Summer Adventures at Acera
With more than 100 summer sessions offered–from catapults to crossbows, metal casting to mini med school, outdoor survival to SEEDS Lab, raft building to robotics, and video game recording to boot!– there has been no shortage of opportunities for exploration and curiosity at Acera’s Summer STEAM Camp. Get a glimpse of the kind of summer adventures found #OnlyatAcera by clicking on our latest photo album.
