Technological Change is Accelerating


Over the last 20 years, how much has your cell phone changed compared to you children's school curriculum?

Many parents feel STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and math) are important to help prepare their children for the careers of their future, but see schools more focused on traditional studies.

Parents understand this which creates a high-demand market. As a Steamoji franchise owner you will naturally become a hub for parents trying to fill this gap in your community.

Steamoji is the first-to-market system in this high-growth franchise category.

In recent years, a trend towards specialized focus (e.g. math, coding, etc) has emerged in the market for private childhood education. Steamoji was built to fill this role for maker, STEM subjects.

Kids Stay Engaged, Parents See Progress

What did your child last say when you asked them "What did you learn in class?" "I forgot" is the all-too-common response. We believe kids need to be engaged in order to attend, while clearly showing parents the progress they are making. Everyone stays happy.

400-Hour "Build to Solve" Curriculum

Our 400-hour structured and reinforcing curriculum sets us apart. No one else has anything like it. Attending 2 hours a week, an elementary school child could spend almost 4 years at your academy. Think of the lifetime value and reduced churn.


To keep kids engaged, we have gamification elements baked in a multiple points. From Oji Coins that are redeemable for prizes, achievement levels to motivate progression, and house teams to create a sense of camaraderie across levels and geographies; all these elements make kids want to come back to your academy.

Backend IT Systems

We provide a number of IT systems to help you succeed. A dashboard administration system helps you manage CRM and operations at your academy. An 'Apprentice App' for kids is used to deliver pre-recorded video lessons. An 'Academy App' helps you make sure everything runs smoothly.

    Seeing kids light up and get excited about new technology is one of the reasons I love being a part of Steamoji. I know we’re doing the right things when our apprentices expand on the skills they’ve learned, and bring an idea from design to proof of concept.
