Featuring courses in Cooking, Survival Readiness, Robotics, Mechanical & Electrical Engineering, Gardening, and so much more! 

Upcoming 2023 Sessions

Extreme STEAM Science Kids offers innovative, hands-on science and real-life experiences that introduce them to the wonders of science and the world around them. At ESSK, we believe that learning should be fun and exciting, not just educational. That’s why our enrichment courses are designed to engage your child’s imagination and spark their creativity, while still teaching them valuable life skills.

Your child can become a pioneer, a groundbreaker, a pathfinder, an inventor, and a leading light into the future with ESSK Skills For Life! Our program goes beyond building robots, making dishes, or following maps. It’s about empowering your child to feel connected, confident, and involved in the world around them.
