About Challenge Island STEM and STEAM Activities

A Fun Infused Learning Experience Like No Other!

 

21st CENTURY LEARNING

STEM activitySkills like communication, collaboration, critical and creative thinking abilities, flexibility, sociability, initiative, leadership, and perseverance through difficulty. At Challenge Island, we are dedicated to ensuring a brighter future for our kids and our communities by helping you prepare your child to succeed in the 21st century and beyond. Learn More >>

STEM + Art = STEAM

STEM + A = STEAMAt Challenge Island Greater Atlanta, we believe that STEM is incomplete without the additional of an “A” for art. In fact many would say that STEAM is the new STEM. During our workshops, STEM and the arts naturally go hand in hand – from the background music to the art supply boxes in our tribal treasure chests to the amazing aesthetic touches our students add to their functional creations. Learn More >>

ISLAND EXPERIENCE

Fun STEM actviitiesIslands are the mainstay of Challenge Island with creative problem solving at each turn. Each session of Challenge Island takes place on a unique thematic island and consists of 8 or more action-packed afterschool classes – or destinations, as we like to call them. A class might “take place”, for example, at TIME MACHINE ISLAND’s Pinball Wizard Way, RAINFOREST ISLAND’S Anaconda Squeeze or MYTHOLOGY ISLAND’S Poseidon’s Seas. Learn More >>

STEAM TEAMS

21st century skillsThe tribe is at the heart of every Challenge Island experience. Far more than just a group of kids, our Challenge Island tribes function like families sharing ideas, hopes and mutual goals. They learn to negotiate, compromise and count on one another. They build bonds, friendships, tolerance and acceptance as they pool their combined strengths and resources to create a far richer product than any one of them could ever achieve individually.

Meet Challenge Island of Sandy Springs / Buckhead / Dunwoody Owner

We are so excited to bring Challenge Island to the Sandy Springs area of Atlanta. Our STEM and STEAM programs are a fun-infused adventure. Whether your children participate in After School Programs, Camps or In School Field Trips, they will have a memorable experience!

“There are a number of STEM and STEAM enrichment franchises, but one thing that makes Challenge Island stand out from the competition is what it lacks. You’ll find no screens or digital devices in a Challenge Island after-school class, camp or family night. Instead, kids, working in tribes, are encouraged to use imagination, teamwork and problem-solving skills to come up with creative solutions to challenges using only a treasure chest full of low-tech art supplies.”
