Look at the ordinary.

Our after school classes facilitate problem solving, bravery, abstract thinking and ingenuity in our students. These are skills children need to grow into capable doers and makers. Students will learn about technology, engineering and design through experimentation, and building with found objects, rather than following a set of instructions.
By offering this type of hands-on learning space with an untraditional structure and more abstract materials, students have the opportunity to gain the greatest sense of pride and confidence in what they create.
Our class environment is at the junction of art and science. We believe the work of scientists and artists are in many ways the same process: starting with basic concepts and ordinary materials then envisioning and building something entirely new. This is the moment of creation. This is an ability that can be developed and nurtured but is often overlooked in traditional educational structures. We created these classes to help fill that gap.
