At what age can you start STEM Classes?

STEM is an acronym that stands for science, technology, engineering and math and STEM programs tend to focus on the foundational skills of innovation, problem-solving and critical thinking. These core skills can be translated across a variety of ages and abilities with activities and projects that are appropriately leveled for the students enrolled.
