Dolphin STEM Co-op

Join the Hive!

Get ready to explore, connect, and grow while you develop your #STEMpassion

Dolphin STEM Academy began as a grassroots initiative to bring quality STEM opportunities to homeschoolers.  Our goal is to help develop their areas of interests, deepen their love of learning, spark curiosity and imagination, and connect them with other homeschoolers with #STEMpassions.
We’ve created several opportunities such as online STEM Camp, STEM Week, Math Tournament, printables and more!
We also offer more in-depth opportunities for students who join our Dolphin STEM Co-op.  The Co-op members enjoy premium-level resources in the STEM Portal, interact with each other during our special events, and have a unique opportunity to possibly participate in our #STEMpreneur program!
