Bronx Makerspace and STEAM Van in NYC Public Schools.
The Bronx Revolutionary Academy for Innovative New Scientists (BRAINS) is an educational movement that promotes literacy through blended learning, Educational Technology (Ed-Tech), and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM).
We are a certified Minority Business-Owned Enterprise (MBE) and a vendor for the City of New York.
BRAINS is the first maker-space in the Bronx. Our mission is to promote literacy and numeracy through content. In our experience, children become better at inquiry when they get engaged; therefore, we use blended learning tools, STEAM hands-on projects and traditional teaching strategies to satisfy the hands-on needs of young minds who love to design (EdTech), build (3D Printing, Soldering, Circuitry) and program (Coding) projects. Our team empowers students to discover their hidden talents through STEAM in our Makerspace or STEAM van. The STEAM van is an all-day visit experience at your school. We arrive at 8 AM and finish at 2:20 PM. The times can be adjusted to your school schedule. We can see up to 5 class groups of students for 40-45 minute periods during the day. Students rotate touring the stations by working on a hands-on project set up on tables outside the van. (In inclement weather we can move the project to an indoor location in your school.) We like to involve all the participating students in a large, group project that each class contributes to throughout the day. The project can be done with one grade level, or mixed grade levels. We can adapt what each group contributes and works on by grade level and developmental ability. STEAM van pricing: In the Bronx $990 for the day- up to 5 class groups of children (about $5 per student) BROOKLYN, MANHATTAN, QUEENS, WESTCHESTER COUNTY $1100 for the day- up to 5 class groups of children (about $5 per student with additional cost for travel and tolls) BRAINS NYC Makerspace Pricing: $19.99 per child.

Our experiential education program combines counseling, play activities, and interactive laboratory work. Students will explore nature while they collect field samples and data. Next day, we will analyze the data and samples in your schools. For an additional cost, we can embed tutoring and professional development services for longer field-trips.
