Who We Are:

Superior STEAM is a year long youth development program dedicated to teaching Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) through FIRST® Robotics and other hands-on lessons, activities, and competitions. 

Superior STEAM is named after the late Danny Daugherty's business: Superior Kiln and Mill Service. His wife, Sandy, is still involved with the program. 

To learn more about Danny & Sandy visit this page.

What We Do:

Superior STEAM was founded in 2019 to give kids ages 6-18 yrs old the opportunity to learn personal and technical skills through the FIRST Robotics programs and other hands-on STEAM related lessons and activities.

While technical skills, like building and programming, are important for STEAM; we--being part of 4-H and FIRST Robotics--know the importance of personal skills, like communication and teamwork. 

See the 4-H Creed and FIRST Core Values below.
