STEAM is a new sport!

Curious. Connected. Creative.

We believe that STEAM programs should be as fun and engaging as hockey, dance, gymnastics or soccer. Science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) learning should surround children with a supportive community of coaches and cheering parents.

The LAUNCH STEAM Leagues have it all – teams, coaches, a bit of competition and all things STEAM with a healthy dose of fun.

 

Explore all LAUNCH Programs and find out how we are creating STEAM-powered programs with a minor sport model.

STEAM as a sport? Yes!

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!

 

Registration includes LAUNCH Boxes packed with all the activities, materials and supplies kids need to participate. 

Thanks to our generous sponsors, bursaries are available so everyone has the opportunity to participate.

How does it work?

Teams meet virtually (or in person at select locations) with their teammates and coaches. Coaches lead, share, encourage and inspire kids with fun science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) activities, challenges and more!
