About STEAM Powered Family

Welcome to STEAM Powered Family where we dedicate ourselves to promoting positive learning experiences for all students!

Our Origin Story

STEAM Powered Family started in 2015 as the brain child and passion project of Shelley Brewer. With her Psychology degree and a passion for science, STEM, writing and learning, it was the perfect project while homeschooling her children.

Over the years the site has grown and developed into an educational resource for educators all over the world. STEAM Powered Family has become known for our mental health first approach to creating innovative kids activities, science experiments and STEM Projects. From homeschooling parents, to librarians, to program coordinators, and most of all teachers… the STEAM Powered Family site is used and loved by people around the world.

Our Goal

The one common goal with all of our STEAM Powered Family visitors is a passion for educating and raising a generation of children that are passionate learners with an insatiable curiosity for knowledge and growth. To achieve this we combine STEM and STEAM Principles with sound mental health practices that are trauma informed.

Here we are constantly looking for ways to foster curiosity and a love of learning in our children, regardless of ability or history. We firmly believe that this is the foundation from which we can set our children up for success in our ever changing world. At STEAM Powered Family we believe inclusive teaching practices and classrooms are key to the success of all education. With a focus on STEM and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math), and positive children’s mental health practices, our goal is to foster resilient, healthy minds.

Our Team

To achieve our goals and develop important resources for our readers, we have a team of highly skilled education professionals from all over the globe.
