Our live online program for 7-9 year-olds (maximum class size of 20 children), will introduce your child to the science behind art and careers that can merge art and science. In each class, you'll read a themed story and do a hands-on science or art project led by a certified primary school teacher. You'll also meet a "mystery guest" who will tell you about their real career that blends art and science!
Six classes (live via an online classroom), 90 minutes/class, 4:15-5:45 PM EST, Dates TBD
Creation of neural pathways to enable solving complex multi-faceted challenges longer-term
For ages 3 to 9 year-olds
English, Chinese, and bilingual programs
Both Synchronous Online and Offline Delivery
Both formats create highly interactive classes with experiential learning
Embeds Early Math and Science Skills

Positive Learning Communities
Opportunities for children to connect with peers in real-time, structured, safe environments -- online and offline
Early Career Inspiration and Exploration
Exploration of STEAM-related professions and hands-on arts learning integrated into child-centric, hands-on projects
Why We're Different
Academically-focused Our program developers blend decades of classroom experience with world-class research on creative intelligence and science education. We create project-based experiences that enable students to build independent learning and inquiry skills that they need in today's hybrid school environments.
Real Thematic Experiential Learning We take "creative intelligence" beyond a buzzword by designing projects that use the creative arts to teach academic subjects and critical thinking.
STEAM Plus Literacy We create "more than another science program" -- our story-based STEAM programs integrate reading comprehension and hands-on STEAM learning and problem-solving.
Early Career Inspiration We incorporate STEAM career exploration into project-based learning to demonstrate “the world of potential”-- students connect their science projects to a STEAM profession that they can work toward.
Positive Learning Communities We know that young people today are missing time with friends so create safe online environments where students can hang out – while we boost their confidence and support their social and emotional well-being.
Shared Parent/Child Experiences We believe in “the power of the parent” (or grandparent or guardian) so design special activities to connect them with their kids while reinforcing learning.
Highly Interactive Live Sessions We know life changes fast and you need a range of options to keep your kids engaged – so have in-person and on-line camps, after-school enrichment programs and home-based independent activity packs—with content in English, Mandarin Chinese and bi-lingual…and in both for-profit and NFP formats!
What is "Creative Intelligence"?
Creative Intelligence is the ability to engage different parts of the brain to connect the dots among subjects and solve multi-faceted problems. Bookends uses “whole brain” approach to learning which strengthens a child’s neural pathways connecting the various learning centers in the brain.
