Friends of STEAM,
It has been a long time since I have updated this website. We share more frequently on our Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/thesteamschool
The kids have been having an amazing time learning about engineering, math, science, music, social studies, art, German, and getting to know one another. My daughter is excited to go to school every day. She talks about her school day and revisits her learning once we are back at home. It’s great to see her taking charge of her own learning.
We are moving forward with a slight adjustment to our schedule. We will be condensing co-op days to Tuesday and Wednesday so that we can open our school site up to the general homeschooling public for weekly classes in art and engineering. We meet at Emmanuel Episcopal Church at 9668 Maidstone Rd at 10am for Engineering and 11am for Art. This is a great chance to get to see our site and meet two of our teachers, so you can consider joining us for co-op days next semester. Subsequent classes are $10/child or $35 for four weeks. You must RSVP, space is limited:

Fellow homeschoolers, you are welcome to meet up with us at one of our public events. Here are some of our exciting events coming up:
MONDAY, November 13, 12pm-3pm, Children’s Museum of Richmond- Fredericksburg field trip. Though the cost is high @ $9/person ages 1+, this museum keeps the kids active for hours in imaginative play. Due to budget constraints, they no longer offer their 15 cent days. Let’s help keep this place open by visiting.
MONDAY, November 20, National Gallery of Art Visit with a tour given by an art expert and friend of the school! Meet at Vienna metro at 10am or meet inside the entrance of the East Building of the Gallery at 11. Tour begins at 11:30. Walk to National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine at 1pm for a brief visit of their engaging science displays. ART and SCIENCE combined!
Finally- We are considering opening classes for OLDER kids. Grades 4-8?? If any of you are interested in such a thing, please let us know what you are looking for, when you can meet, what content you would like covered. I am a former middle school teacher, so I would love to open our doors to older kids, but we need to figure out logistics and ascertain the needs of the homeschooling community.
There maaaaay be summer camp options coming up from us, so if you are interested in hearing more about camps in June, let us know you are interested!
