Created by a PhD Neuroscientist and a Reading Teacher, we bring stories to life through authentic hands-on science. Our STEAM programs range from our signature Science of Harry Potter hands-on program to Percy Jackson and the Olympians, superheroes, classic movie monsters, character robotics, and more.

Our traveling programs are all hands-on incorporating authentic science with kids' favorite stories and themes.

We've hosted The Laboratory at quite a few of our locations in Chicago Public Library and their programs have consistently been well-received crowd pleasers. They are the only organization I know of that directly connects popular children's literature, such as the Harry Potter and Percy Jackson series to their hands-on science activities. I've heard stories of participants being excited to share what they've learned with others even after the program has ended. The programs also include cool activities that result in fun take homes such as slime and even "snow" that kids really enjoy. Amy has consistently been super easy to work with and has been open to taking on different themes that we might need programming for. The Laboratory has programming options that are sure to be popular and has been a great company to work with. I look forward to continuing to bring their programs to more of our locations in the future.
