Silicon STEM Academy is a technology workspace and training center for thinkers, tinkerers and technologists of all ages. We have a singular focus to inspire and equip the next generation of technologists with the skills required to be creative, effective, innovative leaders and problem solvers in the 21st Century. Our goal is to help fill the need left unmet by many schools to ensure students acquire valuable vocational and life skills. To prepare students to support themselves through college and gain early entrance into competitive career fields.
We utilize STEM principles (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) in the context of problem solving through technology.
Our Mission: The myth of the brilliant, self-taught tech entrepreneur has a stronghold on the American imagination. When people think of Bill Gates, they think of a smart young man who grew up at the right place at the right time to foster his love of computers. In reality, he attended an exclusive prep school where he was afforded plenty of computer time—rare at the time—which gave him a head-start on his peers in computer science. This is also true of Mark Zuckerberg. Most think of him as the headstrong entrepreneur who dropped out of Harvard to start Facebook. Most don't know that his parents hired a private tutor to help develop his computer science skills as a child.
My son loved it!
