New Edge Science Academy LLC.
Sheetal Karnik

When science jumps off the page and gets hands on…it’s only then that the ideas come alive!
This after school program is about laying down a strong foundation for your student and developing their critical thinking skills. Education should not only prepare students for exams, but also should give student’s life skills for future careers. Although the highest paying jobs are in STEM fields, students fear the complexity of science topics and shy away from it. At NESA, we nurture interest in science.
The program is designed by a scientist where the students are given a foundation in science and the concepts are made easy to understand.
Students are exposed to concepts in Physics, Chemistry and Biology early on providing a smooth transition for students when they enter high school
Concepts are combined with Hands on activities/experiments to make learning more fun and meaningful.
Students work on science projects and participate in various science competitions.
NESA has helped our high school students achieve a boost in their grades of about 20-40 %
We also offer tutoring in Math and Science at all different grade levels.
