QUESTABOX is a creative curriculum leader who strives to develop and provide new maker-centered classes that spark creative writing, making, and problem solving.
Our vision is to enable students to drive their own learning and creativity and to share them with the worlds outside. We combine Writing (both creative and academic) and Hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Mathematics) Projects or Field Studies in unique and exciting ways. Through small group ratios, multi-sensory learning, and inquiry-based real-world projects, students learn to generate creative ideas and explore many possible solutions.
Our core values are “Imagine, Make, and Share” because we believe in supporting students who have the need, potential and motivation to:
IMAGINE new opportunities as they learn,
MAKE and design creative ways to express themselves, and
SHARE within a diverse community as they acquire skills for respectful teamwork and problem-solving.
We are not a school. We are a place to provide various projects where imagination, real-world problems, and creative writing meet.
Qualified, innovative, and passionate teachers will guide you through the steps leading to the final productions about various topics and themes you like to write and make. We encourage students to design and test new solutions, and build their capacity to solve problems, and persevere in spite of obstacles. We care about learning the social skills required to make friends, learn from each other, and work together effectively and respectfully.
Letter from the Founder
I am thrilled to say that we are and will be meeting your family soon. Many of you have heard about us from your friends, summer camp fairs, or Facebook postings. I know how difficult it can be to find a reasonably-priced program that helps your child discover the joy of learning while having a safe and fun time.
I started QUESTABOX as a mom of two children. My son, Jaden has a great love for Rubik's cube solving while my daughter, Hayley has no fear venturing out to new things and questioning everything around her in a very(!) free-spirited way. For me, it was always exciting to find the "just right" educators and classes that guide and nurture our kids' different passions into creative problem solving and growing resilience to failures, rather than just drilling some subject content.
We have been working hard to make your QUESTABOX experience unique. I am very happy to share our various STEAM + Writing programs, such as Writers & Makers camp, STEAM + World Language, Coding + Writing, Makers Book Club, Food Science + Writing, Camps Abroad, and more.
This is what we do in every class where anyone can be writers and makers at the same time.
2. Design & Make!
3. Share & Improve!
We'd love to hear from you! Send your questions, comments, stories about your child and his or her expectations on summer camp to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's make this summer memorable together. QUESTABOX team will be there. :)
