Let’s Grow STEAMx began as an effort to help our youth connect what they were learning in school to the “real world.” We knew that STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) subjects were in high demand in the global workforce, and we wanted to ensure that our youth could discover and tap into the STEAM-related activities, businesses, and opportunities available to them in the Greater Columbus area and beyond.
Let’s Grow STEAMx hosts two signature Programs
River City Race Program (RCRP) (Ages 7-17)
The RCRP gives students the chance to become real race car drivers – in cars that they build themselves! Our soap box racers get up close and personal with their race cars, reverse-engineering them to understand how they’re built, and then putting them back together to compete against each other in our Soap Box Derby!
Youth College and Career Readiness Program (Ages 10-18)
Our College and Career Readiness Program provides students with the year-round resources they need to succeed in their educational and career endeavors, whether you go on to college, technical school, or into a career.
