Snapology comes to Saint John
Snapology Makes STEAM Learning a ‘Snap’ in Saint John
Saint John– Kids who take part in Snapology classes think they’re just having fun playing with building blocks and other materials that snap together. What kids around Saint John may not realize is that they’re learning too.
Snapology of Moncton successful launched in New Brunswick in Moncton and is coming this winter to service the Saint John area.
For Snapology of Moncton owner, Deji Ayoola, the decision to open his own business was inspired by his 3 children as well as his own entrepreneurial spirit. With an extensive background in Engineering, Deji sought to apply his business acumen to a personal venture. With a passion for his sons’ education in mind and a drive to contribute something meaningful and positive to the community, Deji realized that Snapology was the perfect fit.
“Educating children through engineering and robotics is an amazing way to keep kids engaged while teaching them important life skills. I’m really excited about it,” says Deji.
“I am thrilled to bring Snapology to New Brunswick. There is a great need for programs that integrate STEAM (science, tech, engineering, art and mathematics) concepts,” says Deji. “I’m excited to show the children in our community what Snapology has to offer.”
In addition to the introduction of robotics and science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) concepts, Snapology students learn social skills, such as patience and teamwork.
Snapology offers a wide array of interactive, play-based activities for children ages 3-14 – including enrichment classes, birthday parties, workshops, camps, scouting events and field trips – mainly using LEGO® bricks, K’Nex toys and technology. The programs can be customized based on the number of children, age of children and time allotment, and can be broken down into individual classes, such as Superhero or Minecraft themed events, competition robotics teams, video game design, science classes and engineering skill development programs.
Additionally, the curriculum is designed to benefit gifted and traditional students, as well as children with extra needs, including those with sensory processing and autism spectrum disorders.
