Our after-school program immerses kids in fun, hands-on science every week to spark curiosity and a passion for learning. Each Curieus chapter partners with a local elementary school or after-school community site, focusing on underserved areas, to bring our mission and curriculum to kids who need it most. With passionate high school instructors leading the lessons, our program is unique in its focus on building connections between students in order to make science as fun and exciting as possible, while also developing collaboration, communication, and confidence.
Demonstration and Discussion-Based
Our curriculum is carefully designed to immerse students in the STEM experience through hands-on activities and thought-provoking discussions rather than standard lectures. Students are encouraged to freely share their ideas and explore topics that pique their curiosity.
Youth To Youth
Our programs are led by teams of trained high school volunteers who are passionate about science and giving back. By building youth-to-youth connections with their high school mentors, our students thrive in a safe and supportive learning environment.
