Our Unique Approach
Competitive Kids STEM (CKSTEM) is a volunteer-run, nonprofit organization that enhances kids' education by enabling them to achieve excellence. Through our unique coaching model and competitive training, students are empowered to perform globally. We are committed to bridging the gap of international boundaries and enabling students to become 21st-century global citizens.
Our key focus is to make students "future-ready" through the best portfolio of global contests in STEM. Participating in contests helps students develop invaluable skills, like creative problem-solving and big-picture thinking. It also helps in preparing young learners to take on more significant challenges. As contests are challenging but attainable tasks for young learners, they also build students' confidence in tackling complex problems. It's an essential ingredient for student success both inside and outside the classroom.
Teachers play a significant role in grooming students. We want to partner with them to enrich students' learning. Our goal is to create a sustainable ecosystem to develop high-performing students, which can only be done by partnering with educators. We hope many educators will join us to enrich their student's experience. Please feel free tocontact us anytime.
