STEAM Programs Around Atlanta

Technology and creative thinking make so many advances in our daily lives it’s often hard to keep up. It’s up to parents to take advantage of local resources. Here are schools, camps, programs and museums that emphasize STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) for kids.

Atlanta Academy

Atlanta Academy’s Innovation Center takes 21st Century learning to the next level by providing tools, space and opportunity for students to discover, problem-solve, build prototypes and collaborate as they bring ideas (and baby chicks) to life. The Center is a great mix of art, engineering, creativity and analytics, so every student can have the ability to excel.

Atlanta International School

Primary-year students are introduced to computer science, information technology and digital literacy through classroom inquiry. The secondary years focus on social entrepreneurialism, coding and computer science with the option to achieve a professional certification and continue in grades 11-12 with a two-year computer science course.

Centennial Academy

A Centennial Academy is a conversion charter school in the heart of Atlanta serving K-8th grade. Centennial Academy uses STEAM to create sustainable and equitable, school-based initiatives that integrate the Arts into Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, so that its scholars are inquirers and change agents of their communities.

Chattahoochee Nature Center

Educational and outreach programs at Chattahoochee Nature Center have experienced naturalists teach you during a unique program and learning opportunity. Explore the 127 acres on the Chattahoochee River, learn all about your backyard at the Discovery Center, see the birds of prey in the aviaries of the Wildlife Walk and more.

Children’s Museum of Atlanta

Improve STEAM skills at the Museum with daily programs, including the Super Spectacular Science Show, Art Studio and Build It Lab. Permanent exhibits include “Step Up to Science,” featuring the inner workings of the human body, the wonder of light and the technology of robots and “Tools for Solutions” features simple machines for building.

Club SciKidz

Camps provide an opportunity for kids to see how science works in the real world. Options include experiments and projects in Video Game Creation, Robotics, Veterinary Science, Crime Scene Investigation, Paleontology, Engineering, Space, Biology, Chemistry, Oceanography, LEGO Robotics, Medicine, Programming, 3-D Printing, Drones and more.

The Mount Vernon School

Through design thinking, project-based learning and maker, design and engineering efforts, students engage with their community to innovate. Students collaborate with for-profit and non-profit organizations, create bio-engineering solutions, digital blueprints and more. This learning naturally integrates science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

North Cobb Christian School

North Cobb Christian School partners with parents of over 1,000 students in K-12th grade to utilize their God-given intellect and innate sense of wonder to become critical problem solvers. Through STEAM/STEM, students empathize with real-world problems and create iterative solutions to impact our world.

Saint Anne’s Day School

A leader in innovative and best early childhood educational practices, Saint Anne’s is a Reggio inspired preschool that encourages its students to explore their curiosities. With an emphasis on play, children collaborate on project-based learning, interweaving early math and literacy into the arts and sciences and vice versa.

Science Akadémeia, the Atlanta Preschool of Science

At Science Akadémeia,  children cultivate their innate curiosity while receiving a foundation for math, art, technology, language, and literacy.  A focus on early immersion, using the engineering design steps integrated with the scientific method experimentations, cultivate a child’s ability to develop a scientific thinking process that will last a lifetime.

Sora Schools

Sora is a virtual private middle and high school turning today’s students into tomorrow’s change-makers. Sora’s approach is founded on inquiry-based and interdisciplinary learning, giving students the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills through engaging projects, based on real-world challenges and problems.

The Walker School

From early code work in the Primary School and hands-on laboratory work in the Lower School, to an award-winning robotics program in the Middle School and internship opportunities with the Centers for Disease Control and Georgia Tech in our Upper School, Walker’s STEM program boasts experiential opportunities for students ages 3-18. 

Wesleyan School

Wesleyan School’s STEM program mission is for every student to discover and develop their unique calling from God as a problem solver. The School offers courses in computer science, engineering design, architecture and more to help fulfill this mission.
