Big Learning Science & Engineering (S&E) sparks curiosity in children with playful, interactive, hands-on science and engineering activities. Our program focuses on the fundamental principles of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) innovation. Unlike demonstration-based science programs, Big Learning S&E gives children an opportunity to learn by doing. Through experimentation and play, our program is designed to cultivate critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, creativity, a true understanding of basic science and mechanics, and the confidence to question and explore the world around us.
We offer programs from Pre-K through eighth grade at an affordable rate and students get to take something home every class. Because we try to use commonly-found items in our classes, we can encourage families to try our experiments at home as well as in the class. We facilitate inquiry-based learning for young minds at play in order to make science and engineering fun for all learners.
Big Learning, formerly MCCPTA-EPI, provides high-quality and affordable educational enrichment programs for children in Montgomery County, MD through its three entities Big Learning FLES, Big Learning S&E, and Cultural Arts Showcases. Big Learning is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
