MOE Approved Trainers
Students Trained Since 2009
We believe in making learning a fun and enjoyable experience for everyone. This is why besides offering lessons on critical skills, we also want to inspire and motivate everyone to stay curious and adaptable throughout their lives. We’re here to enable learners to discover the valuable skill sets in STEM and find their place in the fast-changing world.
Our class size has a ratio capped at 8:1
Real Applications - Our lessons are mostly hands-on and challenge students to apply classroom lessons to solve real-life problems.
DSA Portfolio Creation - On top of helping our students prepare for competition, we also help them to curate their portfolios for submission during the DSA period.
We’re confident that our teachers are highly capable of enabling individuals at various stages in their learning journey to master the depth of coding and thrive in our exciting world of tech. We’re here to enable learners to discover the valuable skill sets in STEM and find their place in the fast-changing world.

– STEM Institution
STEM Institution is spearheaded by our Director who is passionate about one thing: Every child should be given an opportunity to learn. Being in the education industry since 2009, he has a wealth of experience in the education field. His objective is to ensure all our students who join us not just take home knowledge but also know how to apply what they have learnt in their lifestyle.
We’re confident that our teachers are highly capable of enabling individuals at various stages in their learning journey to master the secrets of coding and thrive in our exciting world of tech. Consisting of a (still growing) team of 40 trainers, our team of freelancers are frequently deployed to MOE schools and are MOE approved.
"Today's preparations lead to tomorrow's conquest"
With more than 12 years of experience in the educational industry, our Director held positions in various roles in the education industry and was part of the CODE@SG team in 2014. He also spearheaded the Code for Fun (CFF) programme in 2014, jointly with MOE CPDD, and it had been anchored as a core enrichment program in MOE schools till the present. Embracing the importance of STEM and Edtech, he now manages Techstorm Pte Ltd and oversees the operation of the STEM institution which manages training programmes for students and PMETS.
“Let your dreams be bigger than your fears; mistakes are just portals to discovery.”
Our STEM Specialist believes that every student should be given the opportunity to learn in a fun environment. She plans her lessons with many practical activities to give students the opportunity to experiment, experience and engage them to bring out their fullest potentials.
CUSTOMER SUCCESS MANAGER
“Have fun with learning, and you will always love what you learn.”
Our Customer Success Manager has held various positions relating to Customer Service in the education industry. Having worked with various people, she firmly believes that our real clients are the students and any decision for their learning should be made with their best interests at heart.
“Develop a passion in what you do because passion makes a difference.”
Having worked with both students and adults in the education industry for several years, she believes that one should never stop their quest to learn and that learning should be accessible to everyone. Learning is not just about gaining knowledgehut but about how it can be applied in real life scenarios.
Research has shown that STEM programs develop a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigative, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives.
Here are the top 3 reasons why your kids should join STEM programmes:
1) STEM programs teach students how to solve complex issues by breaking them down into smaller, easier-to-handle chunks.
2) Your child will learn critical thinking skills that they can use in many areas of their lives by participating in these programs.
3) STEM programmes often include hands-on projects and activities which make children think creatively and generate new ideas. Skills in STEM areas are becoming increasingly important in the future. As technology continues to progress, skills in STEM fields are becoming more essential. By participating in STEM programmes, your child can develop skills that will be in high demand in the future.
STEM is a teaching philosophy that integrates all four disciplines together into a single, cross-disciplinary program that offers instruction in real-world (as opposed to purely academic) applications and teaching methods.
Here are some examples of the types of programs that fall under the STEM umbrella:
1) Science programs: Hands-on experiments, field trips, and research studies are all examples of science programs.
2) Technology programs: Coding, programming, robotics, and computer science are all examples of technology programs.
3) Engineering programs: Design thinking, engineering concepts, and problem-solving skills are all examples of engineering programs
4) Mathematics programs: Problem-solving and data analysis are both parts of mathematics programs.
Yes, of course, we welcome learners at all levels and our trainers will guide them to their fullest potential!
Our STEM programs are intended for beginners and those with little prior knowledge or experience in science. STEM Institution programs are designed to be inclusive and accessible to all students.
Our STEM programs are specifically intended for students who are new to science or who have not had the opportunity to explore it in depth. Because our STEM courses and workshops are designed for beginners, they can be a wonderful way for children with little or no previous interest in these disciplines to learn the basics.
Our regular STEM programmes are mainly for students who are serious about STEM and are keen to pursue STEM in the future. Our regular programmes are all based on competition preparation and preparing students’ portfolios for DSA or STEM-related endeavors.
Holiday programmes are fun short programmes designed to let kids have some fun while developing a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigative, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives.
Our STEM classes are designed to be enjoyable and fun! Our STEM classes are not inherently stressful or overwhelming. The methodology we utilize in our lessons involves helping students to master STEM concepts and skills by guiding them to apply those to a more complex task easily, with dedicated guidance and support by qualified teachers.
STEM Institution provides impactful STEM education to our learners. Our students not only learn but also “apply” STEM knowledge via attempt problem-solving tasks and activities.
We take a modular approach, where under each program, students are exposed to the different types of coding/robotics available. Each program will be using a different robotic kit and the experience that they have with each program will be different.
We will also want to impart soft skills to them, and whether they take the DSA route or not, we believe that participating in STEM competitions helps to build up our students' confidence, ability to speak and present, work with others to solve problems and get exposed to critical thinking.
We focus on quality rather than quantity. It's not about having a fixed structure that forces all students to learn at the same rate but rather keeping the class small and addressing the different students' learning needs.
