April 10, 2018 4:01 pm
Families living in Frisco new homes are fortunate to have an abundance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and STEAM (STEM + Art) enrichment resources close to their communities. These resources provide fun, interactive ways to reinforce school lessons or explore new interests.
Founded by a teacher, SMARTS Club offers enrichment programs for grades K-12. Kids can participate in activities ranging from robotics and chess to yoga and origami. Young Scientist Labs let children ages 5-14 engage in hands-on activities in physics, biology, chemistry and other sciences. The Leadership for Life series helps them build skills in writing, public speaking and debate. The center also offers after-school homework time, tutoring and test prep help.
