Program Information:

Challenge Island® is a high energy, hands-on STEAM enrichment program. We take children on an "island" adventure where they design, engineer, create and collaborate as they take on an array of fun and educational challenges using only basic materials and their own creativity. The cross-curricular nature appeals to a broad range of students and ensures a diverse curriculum.

Our programming is offered as after-school enrichment, on-site field trips, camps and family engagment events. We are aligned with Common Core; State and Next Generation Science Standards as well as Social/Emotional standards and we meet Title 1 funding guidelines.
