Fantastic Summer!!!

Summer Camp came to an end this week and we had an awesome summer camp at New Hope Community Church.

Kids explored the fun of machines and mechanics and learned about Gravity, Laws of Motion, Magnetic Forces and Roller Coaster.

They did hands-on-activities to learn all the concepts of mechanical engineering to understand Inertia using coins, made a paper ball to learn about force and played with balloons to learn action-reaction.

They designed a speedy car using all the three laws of Motion. Children came up with their own design in building a car and tested the car to see how far their car can go.

Our big project was to Design and build a zipline that goes from one side of the table to another; eliminate a given friction on the zipline using different strings.

Children then learnt about Magnetic forces. Experiment with magnets that help move an object through designing and building a Maze game.

Also Designed and built a maglev train; Experiment on how far the train can travel with the help of attracting or repelling magnets.

The exciting week was where Children also designed and build their own Roller Coaster learning about Potential Energy and Kinetic Energy.

The week of Robotics was one of the favorite weeks for Children where they build their own Robots and programmed using WeDo Kits. They build and programmed a Milo Science Rover, Robo Car, Rescue Helicopter, Robo Alligator, Pulling Machine and a Vaccum Cleaner.

Simple machines concept helped children to understand how we use them daily like, screws, hinges, spring, Pulley, Lever, etc.

Children learnt about renewable and non-renewable energies and how we need to protect our nature by using renewable energies and how fossile fuels harm the environment.

The last week of the camp was all about computer programming, coding and game making, in which children designed their own games.

Inspiring STEM Learning in Young Children in the Chicago Suburbs

Morrisville, NC and Palatine, IL 5/9/18 

Entrepreneurs and technologists, Neelima Bandi and Sandeep Manthena, are bringing STEM For Kids’ programs to the North West Chicago Suburbs surrounding Palatine, Schaumburg, Bloomingdale, Roselle and Barrington .

Neelima-Bandi-Illinois-NorthWest-Chicago-Suburbs-FranchiseBoth are Masters in Electrical Engineering with 24 years of collective corporate experience in engineering and software industry.

Neelima comes with a background in database administration.

In today’s world of big data, massive amounts of data are being collected and stored by organizations around the world. The ability to access and analyze this data has become an imperative.  100 terabytes of data are uploaded to Facebook daily! Walmart handles more than 1 million customer transactions every hour, which is imported into databases estimated to contain more than 2.5 petabytes of data. To put world’s data into perspective, they amount to about 200 billion HD movies which would take a person 47 million year to watch!

When consumers run their credit check at Transunion, or when banks / institutions run credit reports, web applications rely on backend databases to generate the reports, chances are that Neelima’s work is brought into action.

Big data experience coupled with a passion for teaching & working with children, inspires Neelima to ignite sparks of STEM in young minds. She said,

“As a mother of two children, I get inspired by the way they ask questions and awed by their creativity in arts projects. In today’s digital world, there is so much potential to tap that creative energy early on.  I see that first hand with my children and that made me explore STEM options to complement their traditional school education.”

Thinking about why they selected STEM For Kids, Neelima said,

“We explored STEM opportunities in the area but every one of them fell short compared to the breadth of STEM For Kids curriculum.”

When he is not working, Sandeep enjoys coaching children on soccer and basketball games. He said,

“Neelima & I always wanted to start something of our own, not just any business but something relevant to our backgrounds. When we heard the STEM buzz, we explored various providers; besides Lego Robotics and coding nothing much was offered.   STEM for kids definitely stood out with wide array of Programs and concept driven Curricula; we were instantly convinced to have found the right Platform.  We are looking forward to serving the local community with well-rounded STEM Programs”

“We are so thrilled to have Neelima and Sandeep provide their passionate energy to bringing the wonderful world of engineering, biomedicine, robotics and computer programming to young children in the Chicagoland”, says Moni Singh, the creator of STEM For Kids.
