  • This class has my 6 year old trying all sorts of new experiments at home too.  She wants to mix things and even help in the kitchen more. ~ CB
  • Awesome STEAM classes for the Littles! Thank you! ~ TS
  • My kids LOVE the STEAM classes.  As a homeschooling family, it is great for all of us to have the time "apart" from each other.  I know that they are in good hands with Laurie, and that they are learning the whole time.  She does activities with the kids that I probably wouldn't take the time/mess to do, which is a win-win for all of us.  Looking forward to their next class! ~ SR
Located in Pinebrook Plaza, just north of Bell Tower Shoppes.  Opening in July, 2017.
