(L-R) Audrey, Paisley, and Jules, who are homeschooled, showed off their home-made fidget keychains they were selling at the STEM Academy Creative Minds-Big Thinkers Fair, Saturday, April 23.

Parents got a sample of the talent and capabilities of children during the April 23 Creative Minds-Big Thinkers Fair at the Stateline STEM Academy, 9461 N. 2nd St. in Roscoe.

The young entrepreneurs sold creative crafts, books authored by the children, and a variety of home-made items.

Tiny, colorful 3D catapults and cars were selling fast. Derick Korb created the models and demonstrated the capabilities of 3D printers. He also presented his creations at the Stateline STEM Academy's pre-Christmas event.



David Scurlock, founder/CEO of “In Your Face Learning and Training Academy” gave kids the opportunity to put on headsets to experience virtual reality with Oculus Quest 2. The company specializes in immersive education learning and workforce development.

STEM Academy Summer Camp will be starting on May 31 and running all summer. Fun, age-appropriate classes such as Mad Scientist Camp, Engineering Extravaganza, Minecraft, Movie-Making and Coding are among the choices. Morning and afternoon classes are available for three different age and activity levels.

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. For several years, Stateline STEM for Kids has offered after-school and Saturday programs for elementary students, but on September 1, 2021 they began Stateline STEM Academy to serve homeschooling families during school hours.

Arthur was having a Virtual Reality experience at the STEM Academy open house, April 23. David Scurlock, Founder of "In Your Face Learning and Training Academy" provided the equipment.


Derick Korb, creates 3D wind-up miniature catapults and cars using a 3D printer. Korb sold the items at the Fair and demonstrated the process at the STEM Academy's Creative Minds-Big Thinkers open house, Saturday, April 23.
