More feedback from Parents and Students
"This camp was unique, as it taught us more life-skills than any other summer camp, I've attended. It showed us the importance of thinking out of the box, observing, and asking questions about nature. I especially enjoyed the digital storytelling course, analytical writer course, and the public speaking course, which had us exploring multiple topics from our daily lives. " - Shreya, Grade 8
"Children's Innovation Center is a very helpful program that helped me with the skills that i need such as public speaking and writing blogs. I wrote a blog for the first time at Children's Innovation Center within only 2 days, which also surprised my parents!" - Jack, Grade 10
"I had an amazing time at Children's Innovation Center during the summer. I enjoyed the class structure as it really was a cool environment to be in and I also made some new friends too. The thing I liked most was the digital storytelling program. It was fun to learn about a new subject and being able to create an informative presentation about it. Ms. Shanti is a really good teacher and I would highly recommend other kids take her courses." - Arianna, Grade 8
"I always look for good programs to keep my kids busy over the summer. Children's Innovation Center was the perfect place for my daughter. Shanti's program did not disappoint. My child enjoyed the course curriculum and projects that were assigned. She really felt comfortable with the place and it turned out to be a really great learning experience along with an awesome environment. Thank you Shanti!" - AJ, parent of 8th grader.
"Thank you for a well thought-out camp this summer. My daughter enjoyed an enriching environment and learned a variety of soft-skills which are not easy to acquire from elsewhere. I enjoyed watching her ideas come live through animation and design. As a parent, the camp gave me an opportunity to see the immense potential of the kids that was being kindled every day. The program was especially helpful in slowly getting the kids out of their comfort zone of doing things their text books or teachers told them. As the program progressed, I could see how it helped enhance the strengths of each individual child. I hope more and more kids can take advantage of this wonderful program." - Vidya, parent of 8th grader

STEM Plus workshop: A unique workshop for Grade 4-12 students that teaches the new nature inspired methodologies and principles for Systems/Solutions Design Thinking and the Art of Sustainable Innovation, the much needed “STEM Plus” skillsets for the 21st century!
What is STEM Plus? This advanced interdisciplinary workshop equips the students with knowledge and practice to go beyond the existing subject-matters and prepares them on the path with the ability to make new scientific and engineering discoveries.
A workshop that offers infinite creativity opportunities for students in grades 4 - 12.
“Research on the human brain has shown it is predisposed to think in the terms of a story. This predisposition is continuously reinforced and strengthened throughout the life of your brain. Not only can you program your mind with a story — you can program someone else’s mind.” ― Isaiah Hankel, Author of Black Hole Focus: How Intelligent People Can Create a Powerful Purpose for Their Lives
In this workshop students will exercise and develop their analytical skills, and learn to articulate their analytical reasoning in the form of effective blog writing.
“Take the perspective of a journalist or scientist. Really study what's around you. What are people wearing, what do the interiors of buildings look like, what noises do you hear? If you bring your analytical powers to bear, you can make almost anything interesting.” - Gretchen Rubin
This workshop helps students to observe nature’s forms and designs through the mathematical lenses. This culmination of Art and Math is an essential interdisciplinary skill for any Designer.
“Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose.” — Charles Eames
This seminar provides an overview of the threats in the Cyber Space, types of cyber-attacks, risks, and mitigations. Content appropriate for K-12 students.

Our unique value proposition:
Many kids are unable to make observations around themselves and turn the problems around them into ideas and opportunities. We show kids how to make observation, conduct research, apply their acquired knowledge, identify their own passion and potential, understand basic economy and market functions, support and encourage students to confidently take on real-life problems and create sustainable solutions.
We are the only institution that probes into the child’s interests (STEM or non-STEM), teach them methods and tools to formulate ideas and pursue potential opportunities. Children would gain confidence and courage to REACH FOR THEIR STAR!
