Clover Kids

Clover Kids is a program for youth in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. The program is designed to empower children to reach their full potential through child-centered and research-based experiences. 

Clover Kids participate in hands-on activities to investigate science, technology, engineering, math, art, communication and literacy - all while having fun with friends.

STEM Activities

The STEM Activities are innovative programs that support the development of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and literacy skills for K-3 youth. They all use a unique instructional framework that integrates inquiry-based STEM activities and carefully selected children's literature that engage and support positive youth development.

In addition, these exciting research-based programs are designed to support the Next Generation Science Standards, the National Core Arts Standards, the Iowa Core Mathematics Standards and the Common Core English Language Arts Standards.
