For years educators have stressed that students learn better by doing.  As individuals of all ages engage in investigation and discovery using everyday materials and the basic equipment of science, art, math, computers and engineering, we build critical thinking skills that are critical to our decision-making processes throughout all aspects of our lives. 

Our 5,000 sq. ft. facility is fully equipped with state of the art technology that makes learning exciting and immersive.  We have a full art studio, large makerspace, study hall, private conference room, computer lab with the newest virtual reality devices, hundreds of board games and thousands of books for students and parents alike, Hot Dot Systems, 3d printing capabilities, Makey Makey systems, over 150 pounds/50,000 pieces of Legos, video production equipment, Cricut machines, video game units for entertainment and coding lessons, and so much more!  Our facility was designed to capture children’s natural curiosity and help engage them in fun but impart in them a lifelong skill of being able to think critically in the world around them.

What We Do

Expectations and Goals

Our facility is geared to school age students.  Most courses and classes will fall between 6 years of age and 17 years of age. Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis.
