Inspire your budding scientist and engineers with a Virtual STEM-based experience! Genius Gems is now running virtual STEM classes for children ages 5-10. Sign up for a 45 minute one-time class, or a weekly spring class on exciting topics such as Coding, Rainbow Chemistry, Incredible Architecture, Harry Potter Potions, LEGO Lab, Pokémon STEM and more. The classes are taught by experienced Genius Gems educators, are highly interactive and are limited to 8-10 children. Private group classes are also available. At the beginning of each class, Genius Gems' teachers introduce the science concept, and then introduce the experiment or coding project of the day. The children form hypotheses, test their hypotheses and reevaluate based on the results of the experiments or projects. Coding classes are equally interactive, and where possible, teachers will send parents the code following the class so that the learning continues beyond the 45 minute class. In honor of Genius Gems' 2nd birthday in May, Genius Gems is offering a special deal where many of the one-time classes are just $19.99 plus tax per 45 minute class. Try just one, or sign up for more than one! Genius Gems is also offering virtual parties, virtual Girl Scout events and even a virtual STEM summer camp.
