STEAM Recreation Programs Make Learning Fun

STEAM Programming

Summer will be here before we know it, and many parents are already looking for fun and educational camps and classes for children when school is out on break.

The Allen Parks and Recreation Department offers a variety of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) programs year-round, allowing youth to strengthen their educational skillsets in fun and engaging group settings.

Ranging from learning how to code computer games to improving art techniques, STEAM programs are available for all ages and interests.

“Through the STEAM program, participants can learn how to use math, science and other educational skills while recreating and playing and when solving real-world challenges and problems,” said Travis Cunniff, the Recreation Services Manager for Allen Parks and Recreation. 

In the Allen Parks and Recreation Department’s seasonal LIFE guide, many activities listed under the Young Children, Youth and Camps sections have been designated with a brain icon, signifying that they are STEAM programs.
