Project Based Learning Center - Los Angeles, CA


The director and creator of ASTEME, Allan Yu, has worked extensively with many of the private schools on the Westside to help create and develop a unique and dynamic project based learning curriculum. He is now bringing his expertise in curriculum development to the home school community. Join us as we continue our amazing fun filled journey exploring math ideas in the Science, Technology & Engineering fields with BRAND NEW ACTIVITIES. In our upcoming 2018 session, we will be looking at how math is used in Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Biology. The students will learn about Ancient Greek architecture, design and create digital art, explore the different laws of physics, programs robots, and much, much, more! We are excited to be offering full day programs where students can arrive as early as 8AM and stay until 4PM to take dynamic and exciting STEM classes and socialize with their peers. ASTEME's specially designed home school program will differentiate and individualize the math curriculum to meet the needs of each and every student. ASTEME provides a safe and nurturing space from which to explore the many roads in which math can lead us. Our goal is to inspire children to live, love and learn math. Two options are offered during the daytime (see schedule below). Our home school programs will focus on developing a strong mathematical foundation while learning math in a STEM rich environment meeting once or twice per week. Additional assignments may be given to students to complete outside of class time.
