Our Story

For the past 10 years STEM+C has been engaging and teaching students with a focus on aviation, aerospace, robotics and electronics and software.  

Born from the idea that people learn and engage at a higher capacity when science, math and creativity is a hands-on immersive task, where failure is part of the learning, and successes are celebrated.  STEM+C has been engaging and teaching aviation, aerospace, robotics, electronics, and software for over 10 years.
