AMOS offers students meaningful, student designed, STEM oriented curriculum.

We facilitate activities based on what students would like to learn about and ensure the most modern and interactive curriculum!

Student curriculum building helps to give the students ownership over their learning resulting in deeper motivation and interest. Our education team pulls from our lesson bank and design new curriculum whenever new ideas pops up!

We believe in hands-on learning, making most of our activities challenge-based, such as the marble run challenge where teams of students design and build a marble run to see who can get the longest time. We love to see students learning by making the activities seem like games and challenges!

Previous activities: Code making and code breaking, rocket design and launching, ice cream making and states of matter, volcano making and eruptions, leaf chromatography, slime and chemistry lessons.
