The aSTEAM Village vision is to implement an Expanded learning strategy in before/after-school and weekend environments using STEAM curriculum program for family members in Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas City, Kansas. Our model is designed to be easily replicated by communities around the world who we hope will adopt our model and modify it to fit their respective communities.
Initially, the aSTEAM Village program serves students, parents, grandparents and/or guardians in the Kansas City metropolitan area.
Students will be engaged in a rich learning environment and eager to participate in higher-level STEAM education tracks that lead to new career options, and benefit from parental support. The adult participants will gain marketable job skills to advance into better paying jobs, breaking the cycle of poverty, as well as bond with their children and support their goals and aspirations.
Our ultimate goal is to create an aSTEAM Village facility, centrally located and easily accessible to public transportation. Our key siccess indicator will be the adoption and migration of best practices developed in our programs and their integration into the regular school STEAM curriculum.
