OUR M A NTR A All of our thoughts, beliefs, desires, and hopes

are centered on the ideology

that with the proper knowledge and support,

children can do anything. We strive to push the boundaries

of what students believe they are

able to do and ultimately be. Our hope is to walk alongside the youth as memories of our hands on, minds on challenges

fuel their

spirit of courage.

We hope

they will say it was with Generation Infocus that they first began to believe that there are no limits

to what they can accomplish. As a result, we expect our children to be

BOLD in the pursuit of STEAM careers, tackling the world’s toughest challenges

and believing they can start now.

School Day Labs School Day STEAM Lab programming is where we create makers’ spaces in schools. Teachers are able to drop their students off during their planning time while we provide educational workshops that are a part of the school day curriculum. We are replacing specials with STEAM!

PROGRAM INCLUSIONS: • All supplies needed for STEAM lab lesson • STEAM coach • STEAM Works� Curriculum

After School Programs Our STEAM After School Programs are very different than the typical after school program. Our programs immerse students into a STEAM-filled interactive curriculum Monday through Friday from school dismissal (around 2:00PM to 6:30 PM), giving us over 20 quality contact hours per week with our students. Throughout the semester, students engage with assorted STEAM inspired subjects, such as Wearable Technology, Circuits in Motion, PreMed, Dance, etc. In each subject area, the students work collaboratively on projects of various calibers and difficulties, ranging from recitals to creating a smartphone app, to constructing an all recycled material article of clothing.

PROGRAM INCLUSIONS: • All supplies needed for STEAM lab lesson • STEAM staff • Dedicated site director • STEAM Works� Curriculum • Full program management, registration & payment processing • Pre / post data assessments

Studio Elective Classes For organizations/schools that already have a structured after school program, we offer to provide our STEAM studio elective classes. Our teachers pop in to provide skill driven STEAM courses such as wearable technology, water robotics, martial arts, etc. in a 1-3 hour studio class. Often times organizations will have us come in and teach a round of STEAM classes so that we teach one or multiple courses throughout the day to serve as many students as possible.

Summertime Programs In addition to after school and studio classes, Generation Infocus also offers various summer camp opportunities to students in our local area. All of our summer programs are conducted using our STEAM Works curriculum that engages students in STEAM filled activities and lessons throughout the program.

Kodu Game Design

Makey Makeys

Microsoft describes Kodu as a visual programming language made specifically for creating games. Kodu teaches problem solving, creativity, storytelling and programming while expressing advanced game design ‘concepts’ in a simple, intuitive manner. Programs are expressed in physical terms, using concepts like vision, hearing, and time to control character behavior. Introduce your child to the magic of IT by enrolling them in this studio class today!

Makey Makeys were inspired by the budding Maker’s Movement (a technology-based extension of DIY). These “invention kits” allow students to “make” their future and begin to envision themselves as change agents. Students will begin the studio by learning the principles of electricity and conductivity. They will explore by using odd household items such as ketchup, pencil graphite, finger paint, and lemons to generate energy. Join this studio to see your creation BUZZ, chirp, and Whizz!

Earsketch fuses user friendly code language with music elements created by some of the music industry’s leading professionals.
