For Students & Parents

Learning should be an amazing part of a kid’s life.

Our programs and challenges engage students and link learning to life in a fun and unique manner in collaboration with professionals and community partners with real world issues.

We think learning should be an amazing part of a kid’s life. The Student Programs team designs, tests and implements a variety of summer programs, design challenges, and after school programs. These programs and challenges engage students and link learning to life in a fun and unique manner in collaboration with professionals and community partners with real world issues. Throughout our programs participants are introduced and encouraged to apply skills that help make the transition from classroom to career seamless.

PAST Innovation Lab designs and develops innovative, meaningful and culturally relevant programs and practices to engage students. We have collaborated with educators, businesses and industry nationwide to create innovative strategies designed to give real meaning to educational content.

Summer Programs

Immersive summer programs give students an opportunity to apply education in real world settings. Over an extended period of time, usually one week, expert directors take students on adventures to learn in multiple settings about a variety of content areas. These adventures help students develop the soft skills that business and industry desire, such as problem-solving, collaboration, communication and critical thinking. We guarantee that students will complete these programs better prepared for their futures!

After School Programs

Our After School STEM programs provide a variety of activities and choices for students to pursue and engage different interests that they may have outside of a traditional school setting. Our programs engage students and link learning to life in a fun and unique manner in collaboration with professionals and community partners with real world issues. Students will have the opportunity to experience themes such as robotics, Minecraft, coding, technology and art while also developing skills in collaboration, exploration, critical thinking, and communication. 

Community Events

The PAST Foundation hosts a variety of community events to engage students, parents, educators, and the community alike with various STEM activities. Our community events create a space for all to collaborate, innovate, and experience various STEM themed challenges, programs, and activities while exploring their own passions and interests. Community events are also a way to engage industry experts with the community, continuing our mission of linking learning to life.
