Families can learn how sharks, lemurs and national monuments will bring STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects to life for children at summer camps during an open house.

The New World Learning Academy open house on June 24 will provide information about the hands-on summer camps for kids ages 3-9 that run through the week of July 21 at the STEM-based preschool at 900 East Pecos Road, Suite 8 in Chandler. The open house will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The school opened to the public on June 5, and parents and children are praising New World’s summer camps. The topics for the remaining STEM summer camps include “Under the Sea,” “It’s a Jungle Out There,” “Stars and Stripes” and “Around the World in 5 Days.”

All-day programs go from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and half-day programs run from 9 a.m. to noon. Parents also can take advantage of before- and after-care services from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Students are divided into camp groups base on age.

“At New World, we believe in getting kids active in the learning process while having fun,” founder and director Tracie Younce said. “From working in teams to solve a problem of the day to using computer technology to program robots, each camp day is different and new. We want kids to get really excited and curious about the world around them and how things work.”

New World Learning Academy’s 2017-18 Accelerated Preschool Curriculum for youths ages 3-6 starts on August 22. Full- and half-day programs, as well as a Makers Club After-School program, are available. Before- and after-care services will also be available.

Younce said she started the school to meet a need of children to get involved early in hands-on learning. Besides emphasizing STEM, New World also stresses individualized reading programs, language arts, daily writing, music, global studies, art and social skills.
