MINOT, N.D. - Full STEAM Ahead is looking forward to all the fall classes and activities they have to offer the community.
Lion King Jr. the musical is in full swing. The kids are preparing for the shows at Roosevelt Park in mid-September. At the studio, they have a variety of acting classes for kids ages 3 to 14 open as well as the robotics league.
"The youth in the community, those who are involved in sports and those who aren't really, find niches here. So whether it is chess that they don't get to play otherwise or whether it is robotics, they get to explore with maybe an art class or a theater class,” said Allison Auch, Full STEAM Ahead executive director.
Starting in September, STEAM will have an after school enrichment program at eight area schools. Kids get to be exposed to classes that aren't normally taught during the school day.
"To be able to provide something outside of that like robotics, or chess, or whatever that is not a state standard or something that isn't necessarily part of a curriculum so it's supplemental,” said Jeff Ringstad, school administrator at Our Redeemer’s Christian School.
For kids in grades first through six ,they have the opportunity to sign up for robotics, photography, mad science and a lot more at their school. ACE classes will be right after school once a week for four weeks. After each four week session is over, there will be new programs starting.
