Fostering Ingenuity and Curiosity
Building the Next Generation of Critical Thinkers and Problem Solvers
Free STEM Classes
Inspire Curiosity is a 501(c)(3) public charity and non-profit organization dedicated to STEM education, application, and exposure.
Inspire Curiosity aims to serve as a stepping stool for students into the world of STEM. By introducing these subjects to students at a young age, we hope to encourage curiosity and strengthen inquisitive minds. Fostering interest not only has a positive effect on learning skills but also encourages students to ask questions about the world around them.
Our philosophy centers around the concept that curiosity is the driving force behind the desire to improve and the exploration of knowledge. By guiding pupils in building the strong foundation of an inquisitive mindset, we aim to help them grow and develop as self-motivated critical thinkers and problem solvers. Through our interactive and engaging classes, we have built a community of learners from various backgrounds and locations.

why is stem education important?
The U.S. Department of Education states:
"In an ever-changing, increasingly complex world, it's more important than ever that our nation's youth are prepared to bring knowledge and skills to solve problems, make sense of information, and know how to gather and evaluate evidence to make decisions.
These are the kinds of skills that students develop in science, technology, engineering, and math"
"A child's zip code should not determine their STEM literacy and education options"
In New Jersey...
"When you look at how our students are performing academically, it is clear we are not adequately preparing them for STEM fields.
"And the data also shows that many children are left behind"
What do we think?
We believe that STEM is more than just science, technology, engineering, and math. In its distilled form, the STEM curriculum not only promotes critical thinking and problem solving but also gives students opportunities to collaborate with others and develop crucial teamwork skills - assets that will last students a lifetime. Kids will be able to experiment in a fun and supportive environment where failure is emphasized as a learning experience. Students will build resilience and determination - two priceless strengths in life. Kids will also learn how to develop unique and creative solutions as they participate in design challenges to solve complex problems, and will become more familiar with technology as they grow up in an increasingly tech-centered world.
