We Build Nerds

By nature, Nerds are curious humans with many interests. Nerding specializes in cutting-edge, exciting S.T.E.M. classes for kids online and in-person to foster that curiosity! We believe in preparing children for the 21st century by allowing kids to explore core principles in science, technology, engineering, and “making”.

We have quickly become a valley leader in STEM education due to our engaging teacher-developed curriculum, thoughtful grade level groupings, low student-to-teacher ratio, and only hiring the very best certified and experienced teachers.

Watch your nerd’s STEM interest and passion skyrocket with our unique class topics and modern technology, all in a safe, professional, and fun environment. Further your nerd’s skills or help discover what kind of nerd they are at Nerding!

*Why did we cross out Math and say Making…because we focus heavily on hands-on projects, the other disciplines, science, technology, and engineering always have math integrated.

Word on the street.

"My daughter had the BEST time in Survival STEM Challenge online class! She loved participating each day. Every time I watched her she was fully engaged, learning and giggling with the class. I love that you were able to transition these in-person classes and make them just as interesting for the students to take virtually. The independent projects were fun for her to do on her own, or with us. Such a great way to keep them thinking and learning while stuck at home. Thank you!

"My kids LOVE Nerding classes and pester me each year to make sure I sign them up. The classes are so well run and I'm amazed at how many talented and amazing teachers they have on staff. We can't wait for the online classes!"

"My family LOVES Nerding classes! Our oldest daughter took her first Nerding class four years ago, which sparked her love for everything STEM related, and since then, she and her sister have become total science nerds! "

“As a woman with a Masters Degree in a science educational field, it’s vital to me that I surround my 3 daughters with strong women STEM role models at a young age to build their STEM confidence. NERDING has been life changing for their STEM IQ, passion for science, confidence development, and vision for STEM careers that they are truly capable of. On top of that, it’s unbelievably fun!!”

"We have Have been die-hard fans of Nerding for 5 years. Their in-person classes are top notch and I'm confident they will rock this online learning space too! I can't believe how fast they put this all together! -Update: Now that our son has taken the online class we signed up for, we were right, Nerding has delivered a great live online learning experience. Thank you!!"

"My daughter always feels empowered to use her brain in new ways after Nerding. She learns way more than is taught in the class and we I can't wait to build on her "homeschooling" with Nerding this spring!"

“These are the BEST classes and his Nerding teacher is AMAZING! My third grade son absolutely loves science and these classes engage his interest and thinking skills at a whole new level! He is always eager to share with me what he did and the concepts learned in class each week. Thanks for all that you do!”

“R LOVED the classes and I really liked coming to his final day to watch his rocket launch for Space Science. You are fantastic. You have such a fun adventurous spirit and I think the kids really respond to that. R actually modified his rocket for his first ever science project. He retained the information and loved it.”

“M LOVED it. He learned a TON and you built so much background knowledge into their brains that it will come back to them as they learn more and more about space! Bottom line for me is that if M loved it, and felt safe and confident about his experience, it was a win for all of us! He will be back!”
