To help our students build employable 21st century skills, CYC delivers a robust STEAM (STEM + the arts) education program to provide access to technologies, equipment, and expert one-on-one instruction necessary to thrive in a 21st century economy.

In this program, youth explore many subjects including: 

IT NETWORKING

IT networking & coding

rOBOTICS

Electrical engineering & robotics

bIOLOGY

Biology & life sciences

These STEM subjects are studied in CYC arts classes, too. Examples of past projects include:

Many STEAM activities take place in the CYC Maker Lab, a creative and technical workshop where children become innovators. As they dream, design, and build, they develop STEAM-focused technical skills (how to code, manipulate vectors, use a 3-D printer, laser cutter, etc.) and applied skills (how to think critically about complex problems, work in teams, and follow a project from idea to product).
