We provide a safe space, where kids feel comfortable using STEAM Thinking. We use the activity before concept approach, which makes the lessons more applicable to our kids. This approach not only attracts kids to STEAM but also shows them how exciting these kinds of careers can be.

Steam Ignite Activities

RISE OF THE BOTS

Using creative design thinking students will discover what can happen when you combine the power of technology and the arts.

PHASE TRANSITION OF MATTER

Explore the states of matter while observing some of the properties that make dry ice so unique (in person only).

WE HAVE CHEMISTRY

Let us create something new!

READY SET BUILD

Our young engineers will use the principles of the engineer design process to construct a freestanding tower while competing against each other and the clock.

WHAT GOES UP MUST COME DOWN

In this activity students will be introduced to force and gravity. The engineering design process and creative design thinking will be reinforced as they work together to engineer a structure to protect their valuable cargo (in person only).

BRIDGING THE GAP

Can I truss you to build my bridge?

BLAST-OFF

Using chemistry to harness the energy from a reaction, our future astronauts will be able to generate enough force to launch a rocket into the sky (outdoors/in person only).

RISE OF THE DRONES

Students will be in the pilot seat as three-dimensional learning brings Newton’s First Law to life, while discovering the endless possibilities of drone technology (in person only).

IS THAT ART

Students will get hands-on as they discover the wonderful world of art.

TESTIMONIALS

“…Mr. Richard, Bell has a strong reputation for providing students with experiences that prepare them with the knowledge and skills needed to become the global thinkers of tomorrow. Through a well-developed, engaging presentation of STEAM concepts, students will be able to participate in tangible ways to solve real-world problems.”

Laura Rebollar CCA Community Liaison

“I would recommend Kids First Initiative STEAM Program to my colleagues; it helped the kids to see Stem and practice some science in action that we don’t do in the classroom.”

Educator Lakewood Elementary

"Thanks to you for the opportunity! It was great to see how engaged and excited the kids were, and to see some parents getting involved. I think what you are doing is a great service to the community."
