Our mission is to ignite STEM careers in children who will grow up to make extraordinary impacts in the world.  We invite children, parents, and friends of all ages to explore Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in a restaurant-like environment filled with fun, unexpected, all-sensory-provoking, learning experiences.  Within our unique and unprecedented platform, we believe children who make mistakes while attempting their experiments and projects should be celebrated (since making a mistake is when we learn the most!).  We also believe laughter is a great elixir for learning.   Our hope is to inspire every generation (even parents and grandparents) to take a real interest in the STEM around us, and most importantly, connect the dots to STEM careers.  The way we do that - HIRE GREAT PEOPLE!
