IDEA Lab Kids East Oakville is an innovative program dedicated to educating today’s children/youth through S.TE.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) programming. Our modules are so engaging, hands-on and stimulating that your child is guaranteed to have an enjoyable experience. We offer after school with transportation, summer camp and birthday parties!
One of the great things about camp is that it can grant children a broader sense of what they’re capable of, and get them in front of people who exemplify the full extent of those capabilities. Idea Lab Kids is a great example of that. It looks like a lot of fun, and it is, but the programs also get kids working together on shared activities and projects that grow a facility with science, design, and engineering. That the Idea Labs Kids programs were first developed by a woman in science, Ghazal Qureshi, adds a nice perspective to the venture. While it’s gradually changing, girls tend to be underrepresented in the science disciplines, and both for them and the boys too Qureshi serves as a particularly great role model and mentor, even if she isn’t front and centre in participants minds. Learning is important, thought these programs know that it can take many forms—social, personal, academic—and rightly works to develop all those areas. The Calgary locations were the first in Canada, with Oakville a close second, after first being established in the US. Idea Lab has now expanded to 87 throughout the world, including those in Ecuador and Lebanon. That adds a depth to the programs, with rich human and material resources beyond what you see at first glance. New offerings are developed continually, by a dedicated team tasked to grow the programs while keeping abreast of best practices and emerging technologies.
