S.T.E.M. Vanguards 

  early child care education   

Improving the Understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math

S.T.E.M. Vanguards is designed to engage young children and their families in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics during the crucial developmental early years. Located in San Diego County, our experts have combined 30 years of experience working with children and their families to provide early exposure to S.T.E.M. education. 
Our team offers families the knowledge of how S.T.E.M. education can be applied through play and everyday interactions while outlining the advancement in education policies impacting their children. S.T.E.M. Vanguards provides a healthy competition to children ages 3 to 6 years to develop S.T.E.M. Projects as a family and present them during our S.T.E.M. Expo. The competition is designed to encourage young children early exposure to science, technology, engineering, and math through the comfort led by their family. Our primary operation is located in the San Diego area with hopes of expanding services nationwide.
Children and families involved in S.T.E.M. Vanguards will have the opportunity to develop S.T.E.M. Projects together using a template designed by our experts to present at our local competition. The purpose of the S.T.E.M. Project is to demonstrate evidence of science, technology, engineering, and math. Youth participants are evaluated on developed presentation skills, advance vocabulary awareness, and project functionality. Our competition encourages young children and their families to provide evidence of working together on their S.T.E.M. Project and documentation from parents of instructional patterns they used to teach during their work as a family.
The S.T.E.M. Vanguards competition will be evaluated by field experts to determine the following areas: S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), Presentation, Family Documentation, and Functionality. Participants will have the opportunity to win prizes and monetary scholarship toward learning more of S.T.E.M. Education application and instruction. Participants must become a member of S.T.E.M. Vanguards to be eligible to participate in our competitions. All competitions involve an entry application and fee.
