Team-based programs that inspire kids to explore science, technology, engineering, art, and math


LAUNCH brings all the best things about minor sports to STEAM programming.

Our team-based programs inspire children and youth to explore science, technology, engineering, art, and math in fun ways!

Kids meet after school and join teams led by coaches for hands-on activities that encourage curiosity, creativity and the courage to follow their passions. Coaches lead, encourage and inspire kids with fun activities, team challenges and maybe a few surprises along the way!

Check out our programming to learn more about how LAUNCH is making STEAM a team sport.
