Emily is really onto something. She has created that perfect mix of fun + hands-on-learning + authentic connection in a virtual environment!
I'd recommend Big Dreams Bloom to any family that wants to inspire their little girl to BLOOM!

I cannot say enough positive things about this wonderful virtual program that Simona did last week with Big Dreams Bloom. Emily Blomquist has done an incredible job crafting each and every session (journal keeping, tinkering encouraged, projects, art) highlighting important women in history that are not frequently talked about. Role models may not be the usual suspects, and why not Joan Proctor, Emma Lillian Todd, Evelyn Cheesman, Julia Morgan and Ruth Asawa (the women she learned about). I learned a lot too and had fun listening in. Simona really enjoyed meeting gals from other areas and the class size was small. What a breath of fresh air. Thanks Emily!

So grateful for Big Dreams Bloom for teaching my sweet "out of box thinker" she can be anything.

My daughter has enjoyed participating in Big Dreams Bloom sessions for the past year. We were looking for virtual enrichment programs during our time at home last year. Emily Blomquist has created a unique opportunity for our girls to learn the stories of amazing women throughout history and work on thematic STEM-related projects. It's also fun to engage with girls across the US. I learned about this program through a friend's Facebook post and I'm so grateful she shared it.

Anna absolutely loved her first session and has been asking every night how many days until the next one. You did a first class job! As expected! Thank you so much!

Alexa - Winter Park, FL

Caitlin absolutely LOVED (“like, LOVE-LOVED”) the session this afternoon. Thank you!!!! You are an extraordinarily gifted educator and an amazing role model for our girls! Not only is it common for us to have meaningful conversations about the women she learns about in each lesson, but she now frequently talks about how she can "make a difference in the world, just like them."

Christy - Orlando, FL

Our daughter (7yo) absolutely LOVED her Big Dreams Bloom classes! There was so much thought put into the design of the experience to maximize learning AND the heartfelt connections with the teacher and her peers. In between classes, she could not stop talking about what she had learned - she was so proud. I was a high school science teacher... and I learned so much from the STEM classes she was going through. It was a great experience for the entire family!

Sofia - 5th grade

I like learning about women who have helped the world, being able to discuss important and real things, the fun art and science projects, and being with other girls and working on stuff together!
