In our search for quality educational STEM materials to serve our bilingual families, we found very little so we took matters into our own hands and created unique STEM content for both English and Spanish speakers. We are on the forefront of the bilingual STEM effort and have presented our materials at an educational conference at CalTech University in Pasadena, California.
Please take a moment to look at our STEM videos and share them with your friends and family! Click over to our STEM page and see all of the videos, along with the lesson plans and material lists. You can also find our video content on You Tube, click on Centro de Niños channel to visit our channel!
