The STEAM Afterschool and Summer Programs are currently offered to students in 3rd through 8th grades at the Shikellamy School District. The program is provided at NO COST to parents through the 21st Century Community Learning Centers federal grant. The Afterschool STEAM Program offers each student an opportunity to meet their academic and social milestones through out-of-time learning opportunities. In addition to the academic opportunities, STEAM provides homework help, physical activity time, and a daily meal provided by the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. Transportation 
to and from the program is available each day

The program staff is comprised of district teachers and classroom aides who will help your child excel at the program. Staff will focus on learning group activities and enrichment in the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts and math.
