In coordination with the Keansburg School District, STEAMpark, INC is providing curriculum-based after-school enrichment care on campus at Joseph Bolger School for the 2018/19 school year.

Titan STEAMpark Academy After-School Enrichment offers hands-on opportunities to enjoy Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, with Art infused at every level for guiding student inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking. Its thematic curriculum and S.T.E.A.M.- based lesson plans align with NJ State Learning Standards and the district’s curricular flow. With emphasis on improving literacy skills and gaining mastery over basic mathematical operations, Titan STEAMpark Academy Students learn basic elements of circuits, coding, robotics and all things science.
Students also enjoy individualized homework help, community/career connections (role models, guest speakers and teen mentors), healthy snacks, fitness, book clubs, and life skills lessons (teamwork, building self esteem, self regulation, empathy, hygiene, following rules). The Titan STEAMpark Academy educators work with district learning specialists to ensure that each student is individually supported according to his or her own unique needs.
