Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) After School Program Initiative:

Casa Familiar is infusing STEAM curriculum in our existing after school programs M-TH from 3:30-7:00PM. This program encourages and provides an opportunity for San Ysidro students to practice and discover the sciences, technology, engineering, arts, & math (STEAM) while continuing to receive tutoring and homework assistance with the goal to improve math skills and academic performance. We nurture children’s inherent curiosity of the world and create a space where they can observe and process STEAM  lessons using all their senses including play and physical activity. Youth engage with professionals in STEAM related fields. We seek guest speakers and all forms of collaborative support for our STEAM after school program. Please contact Estela Flores at for inquiries, collaboration and support of this program. Current collaborations include NCLR’s Innovation Lab Project, the San Ysidro Vanguard Education Foundation‘s robotics program, Science of Sport, funded by SDG&E, NCLR, and COX Communications.
