Welcome to East Cork STEM Academy

East Cork STEM Academy offers a unique programme of STEM based classes through the medium of LEGO® to preschool, primary and secondary school students. Based at our state-of-the-art facility in Youghal, Co.Cork, our Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) Academy provides a full range of After School Classes, Weekend Masterclasses, Camps, In-School Workshops, Birthday Parties and Special Occasions. We also offer Maths Grinds to both Junior and Leaving Certificate students, both Higher and ordinary Levels.

East Cork STEM Academy :: Learning Through Lego®

We will ensure that each student receives the best possible experience with us and we have a number of ways of doing this:

  • Our numbers are strictly limited to a maximum of 6 students per instructor, so 3 teams of two children per instructor
  • Each team of two has its own dedicated LEGO® system during each class
  • Each team of two has its own laptop and tablet provided to them by us
  • LEGO® assessment sheets are completed each week for each student to monitor their progress and to ensure they are not falling behind.

However, it must be emphasized that our primary goal is for each of our students to enjoy themselves, to have fun and to not see their participation as a chore. The only limitation to our classes is your child’s imagination. We want to see their creative side come out and to harness their imaginations to build whatever they can dream of. Hence our STOP-GO Animation classes, where the students will make their own movies using our LEGO® systems. You will be able to see their productions at our annual Hollywood Night, to be held in conjunction with the Regal Cinema in Youghal.

No two classes will ever be the same! This is not school!!!!

Our Maths Grinds classes focus on exam questions and the old school approach that the student’s brain is better than a calculator! There is no fancy technology used in these classes, just me, a whiteboard and a marker. It has proved to be a very effective approach.
