Wicked Cool for Kids provides enrichment programs for elementary and middle school kids that challenge them to investigate their world through science, art, and technology. We base our programs on three fundamental principles – Learning, Fun and Safety. Our curriculum is structured around an experiential environment where we engage kids in challenging activities. Our staff are encouraged to be kid-centered rather than curriculum centered, so that kids are always stimulated and on task at their own level and pace. Our model of instruction is based on this activity-based, fun atmosphere. Visit www.wickedcoolforkids.com for more information.
