My kids go to many camps but this was by far their favorite! They love learning, utilizing creativity and cannot wait until next year’s camp. We came upon this camp while visiting The Maker Faire Bay Area - couple of years ago and we wonder why we waited so long to send our kids. We will definitely be back next summer!

I work with foster youth. Stem Camp really inspired one young man that I work with. I watched him blossom and laugh and become very intellectually inspired while at the camp. On the last day, when all the parents come, he ran around the room showing me his mechanical arm that picked up candy when he pressed a button. He was so proud and his smile was huge. It was amazing to watch my foster youth demonstrate his creative invention with confidence and I believe it helped his self esteem as well.

Wonderful program for my CASA youth. He learned so much and loved going to the program. This was all made possible by the grant he was given to attend.
Thank you so much.

My son has attended the summer camp for the past two summers. He never wants to repeat a summer camp but he enjoyed learning tech so much he returned. I like the many different subject options and all the cool perks like the 3D printer.

The Miller Institute for Learning has always made kids their top priority. They want all children to have an opportunity to learn cutting edge technology that will help them achieve success in the future. They have wonderful rapport with students and strive to make learning fun. Kids walk away feeling better about themselves and are better equipped to function in our technological world.

My son attended their summer class in 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed it. He's been into Lego robotics ever since and is in a robotics after-school program this Fall. I wish the Learning Institute would partner with local schools to make the schools' robotics programs more robust.

We are always very appreciative when someone takes the time to write a few kind words about our programs. We are also happy to note that we are offering many after school programs in the Bay area, in partnership with local schools as well as cities. We are excited to share that we just learned that our team, the San Mateo County Community STEM Alliance (a partnership with Pacifica, Half Moon Bay and San Carlos as well as our colleagues at Coastside STEM) has been selected for a grant, reaching out to under-served students in several areas of the County. We would welcome the chance to collaborate with our friends in RWC, such as North Star Academy, as well.
