Stem Cafe combines LEGO® robotics, Java coding, and lots of imagination to provide a unique STEM learning experience for kids (ages 7-14) in the Largo/ Upper Marlboro Area. In our Robotics Labs, kids journey through an extensive, project-based curriculum, earning bands of accomplishment with each promotion. All Labs are led by trained Mentors with a passion for education and a deep sense of play and fun. We operate year-round through Summer Camps, After School programs, and Classes. Girls and boys, alike, find Stem Cafe instantly engaging, social, and fun!
BUILD. Start with LEGO MINDSTORMS®, then throw in an everexpanding supply of advanced robotic sensors, unique building materials, and crafts. The engineering possibilities are endless. And, kids are solving problems, not assembling kits.
CODE. Kids code their robots in Java, one of the world's most popular and powerful programming languages. Not only can robots do more advanced things with Java, kids are learning a highly transferable skill.
PLAY. It's all about fun. Kids engage in product design, compete in tech challenges, play team games, and dive into open-ended creativity, all while making new friends. Project videos are captured and uploaded to our private Wonderwall where you can share them with family and friends.
