Kiddos Play & Learn is an innovative S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) play and learning company focused on exciting children's interest through hands-on play. We provide workshops, after-school classes, camps and S.T.E.A.M based parties for children ages 3-18.
Kiddos Play & Learn was founded by Ericka Evans a former laboratory scientist, science educator, science curriculum specialist, and mother who holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology minor Chemistry. One weekend, Ericka's daughters commented that the frequent indoor children's play facilities in the area were “all the same" and wished for a more exciting option. Ericka wanted to provide her daughters with a play experience which was memorable, exciting, engaging and most importantly, FUN! At that very moment, Ericka knew that her children along with other children in the surrounding areas deserved a play option which excited kids interest and incorporated learning into play while having fun.
WHY STEM (Science, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERINg, and Mathematics) based Play?
“In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” (National Science Foundation)
