MissionTo foster the next generation of critical thinkers, problem solvers, innovators, and leaders through hands-on creativity-enhancing exploration. We bring STEAM to children in need.
What We DoTo cultivate creativity by providing kids with the experiences they need to look at the world in new ways. We engage kids with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs. Our approach to teaching uses the Design Thinking process and "STEAM" -- the "A" (art) adds the ability for students to look at a situation from new and creative angles and inspires innovation.
By meshing creativity, STEAM, Design Thinking, and reuse, Child Creativity Lab inspires students to learn vital skills necessary to compete and lead the 21st century workforce and raises their potential for personal development and entrepreneurial contributions to society.
In all of our workshops the kids prove to us and themselves that there are countless ways to solve a problem. That is not particularly the way things are taught these days - more often kids get taught the ONE way how things (should) work. So there's a huge emphasis on creativity, thinking outside the box, going a different route. Our programs are different than other STEM programs because we encourage children to use their own ideas and creativity or to try out different ways of solving a problem rather than being presented with a step-by-step manual. We are the Child Creativity Lab!
