Stem Pro Academy is committed to making sure that students don’t miss the chance to explore the subjects of science, technology, engineering, and math. We’ve made it our mission to ensure that students receive the hands-on, imaginative experiences they need to open their minds to new skills and bright futures.
In addition to learning science, technology, engineering, and math in a fun and engaging environment, we help our engineers-in-training develop problem-solving skills and discover how the world around them works. These skills are extremely beneficial for students of all skill levels, and our learner centred curriculums adapt to present age-appropriate challenges that grow with your children each year.

Our curriculums are learners' centered. We assess our students not only on what they have learned and how well they have learnt, more importantly, on their learning behaviors, interests and passions; upon which we develop individualized content and learning plans for our students.
“In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” (National Science Foundation)
Stempro Academy's Cone And Pie©
Stem Pro Academy's Cone and Pie© is the core methodology applied for our STEM programs.
What is the Pie?
Stem Pro Pie has three circles, Programming, Math, and, Science and Technologies. These three nutritious ingredients are extracted from our daily life and everything in mind. This is how the Pie is made:
PAS - Pick a scene or a set of items. Identify the attributes and interactions of interest. Abstract them into a series of science and technology concepts.
MMN - Map math notations to these sci & tech concepts. Describe interactions with math formulae.
MIA - Make a "problem statement"; choose a computer language to implement. Programming is math in action.
What is the Cone?
Like the pies in grocery stores, Stem Pro Pies come with varieties, differentiated by flavors, styles and nutritions. These varieties reflects stages of learning capabilities and cognitive skills*. There are many discussions about essential skills for our students. When we design our curriculums, Stem Pro deeply integrate the following seven skills that students need for their future:
Critical thinking and problem-solving.
Collaboration across networks and leading by influence.
Agility and adaptability.
Initiative and entrepreneurialism.
Effective oral and written communication.
Accessing and analyzing information.
Curiosity and imagination.
