Courses are taught using the Transformative Education Framework, which has the Students Activities Progression as shown below:

Students will learn advanced new materials in engaging and fun ways. They will learn how to explore the world around them and make observations. They will learn how to conduct research on the observations they made. These activities help the students to turn the problems around them into ideas and opportunities. Students will conduct research to understand the root-cause of an issue, identify current solutions, and gaps, and suggest what they think can be done further.

The findings from their research activities will be used for their project. The type of project activity and completion requirements will vary based on the courses.


STEAM Summer Camps Feedback

More feedback from Parents and Students

"This camp was unique, as it taught us more life-skills than any other summer camp, I've attended. It showed us the importance of thinking out of the box, observing, and asking questions about nature. I especially enjoyed the digital storytelling course, analytical writer course, and the public speaking course, which had us exploring multiple topics from our daily lives. " - Shreya, Grade 8 

"Children's Innovation Center is a very helpful program that helped me with the skills that i need such as public speaking and writing blogs. I wrote a blog for the first time at Children's Innovation Center within only 2 days, which also surprised my parents!" - Jack, Grade 10 

"I had an amazing time at Children's Innovation Center during the summer. I enjoyed the class structure as it really was a cool environment to be in and I also made some new friends too. The thing I liked most was the digital storytelling program. It was fun to learn about a new subject and being able to create an informative presentation about it. Ms. Shanti is a really good teacher and I would highly recommend other kids take her courses." - Arianna, Grade 8

"I always look for good programs to keep my kids busy over the summer. Children's Innovation Center was the perfect place for my daughter. Shanti's program did not disappoint. My child enjoyed the course curriculum and projects that were assigned. She really felt comfortable with the place and it turned out to be a really great learning experience along with an awesome environment. Thank you Shanti!" - AJ, parent of 8th grader.

"Thank you for a well thought-out camp this summer. My daughter enjoyed an enriching environment and learned a variety of soft-skills which are not easy to acquire from elsewhere. I enjoyed watching her ideas come live through animation and design. As a parent, the camp gave me an opportunity to see the immense potential of the kids that was being kindled every day. The program was especially helpful in slowly getting the kids out of their comfort zone of doing things their text books or teachers told them. As the program progressed, I could see how it helped enhance the strengths of each individual child. I hope more and more kids can take advantage of this wonderful program." - Vidya, parent of 8th grader
