August. 30, 2016, DENVER – Silicon STEM Academy (SSA), a technical training and learning center in Denver dedicated to teaching middle and high school students computer programming, robotics, digital media and other technology skills, has been recognized by Colorado Parent Magazine as one of the Top 5 Family Favorites for 2016. Included in the “Lessons and Camps” category, SSA was among a select group of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) providers.
Colorado Parent Magazine describes a Family Favorite as meeting a set of standards and key criteria including: great value, family-friendly atmosphere, fun for all ages, a trusted resource and superior customer service. Family Favorites, however, go beyond the expected selection criteria in that the recognized programs are compiled from the readers and parents, the greatest judge of all, who have the first-hand experience when choosing an after-school or summer camp program.
“Our singular mission at Silicon STEM is to enable students with critical 21st century skills and to augment standard core curriculum,” said Kelly Scarborough, co-founder of Silicon STEM Academy. “We’re very proud to be recognized by the readers of Colorado Parent Magazine and appreciate their shared commitment to STEM enrichment for their students.”
Fall registration for Silicon STEM after-school courses are open now. Additionally, due to popular demand, SSA now offers a series of adult classes in a variety of tech categories. Courses range from 18-24 hours of instruction and prices vary depending on the difficulty level of the class.
