Our Services

 Preschool STEM Expo Events

S.T.E.M. Vanguards offer a STEM Expo for children ages 3 to 8 years and their families to participate in developing S.T.E.M. Projects to present and demonstrate STEM skills for county recognition and rewards.


The purpose of encouraging children and their families to engage in S.T.E.M. Projects is to increase young children's interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Starting this process at an early age with the encouragement of parents may advance the way children entering elementary approach the instructional learning of S.T.E.M. education.

Families participating in the STEM Expo will become a member of our program designed to keep families connect to education policies for our youth and how it will impact the way S.T.E.M. education is taught in America.
Once participating, S.T.E.M. Vanguards will provide a project template and platform designed by experts in the field of Early Childhood, Engineering, Science, and Mathematics to ensure children and their families are supported while designing their project for presentation. We are devoted to early exposure and here to make S.T.E.M. fun for all!
Details of our next Preschool Expo coming soon...

We took Dr. Grimble's Administrative STEM Evaluation TOT Training and the information we received was valuable for implementing STEM in our programs. The things we learned for marketing our program has helped our enrollment.

The training presented by Dr. Grimble was excellent. It helped me to understand that technology is so much more then computers, phones and iPads. I look forward to sharing the information I learned with the teachers I work with.
