What Parents Have To Say

My child is grounded for bad behavior when I pick her up from after school care at Idea Lab.It is every after school care required parent’s dream for their child to be in a safe environment with homework support after school. Extra support for topics like science, technology, whatever e stands for, arts and math is a great investment in a child. It’s also a privilege to have it available and to be able to provide the opportunity. #steamparentwannabeIf you were ever to ask me if LEAVING these kinds of activities would be an issue for a child of mine, I would not even be able to imagine what you were talking about. Prolly because I’d be distracted by that pretty butterfly with no conscious awareness of evolution, physics, art, or that e thing that all are a part of what that pretty butterfly is and does..Karah has enjoyed all of her extra activities over the years, but she has never felt so passionately about them that they were a currency.I took away Idea Lab last night for her behavior choices when I pick her up and she worked so hard when we got home to earn IDEA Lab back I am letting them have her today.Thanks to Idea Lab, the dog poop may be picked up and the empty juice boxes may actually make it to the trash can.This STEAM thing might actually be working for me!#northshoalcreek

My son is very shy, he RUNS into this place every morning! He chatters all the car ride home about what they’ve done at camp. I always ask him if he had a good day and every day he says “No mom, I had a GREAT day!” By far the best programs keeping kids engaged and learning! Would highly recommend:)

We had a mobile Minecraft Birthday Party at our house for our 7 year old and it was so awesome! The kids were engaged the entire time- with the staff having great management skills while conducting unique, fun activities. All the kids loved it and the parents were impressed too. But the happiest of all (besides my son who was thrilled to get a bit of laptop time with his friends 😄) was me- because the party planning was a breeze and a success. Thank you!

We celebrated our sons 6th birthday party and it was truly an awesome party! The party room was big enough to accommodate my big party, the dinosaur theme decoration looked great! The guys enjoyed the basketball court upstairs along with myself. The kids really enjoyed all the activities! It was nice they let the kids assist in making the volcano erupt! I will definitely be returning for future birthdays.. and the best part we had the entire facility to ourselves, so the children were safe!

Both of my daughters go to Idea Lab Kids for the culinary arts class and they absolutely love it! They love their teachers and the center in general. They offer a lot of options for after school care and I’m definitely going to be enrolling my girls for more classes here. We’re thinking about summer camps already! Only con is can be a bit loud in the center but what can you expect with a place full of kids. Overall we love idea lab.

My children always love coming to camp. I am impressed by the tough concepts that they explore which always leads to fun conversations on the way home and further experimentation over the weekend. They seem to have knowledgeable and friendly staff and the sticking point for me is that the kids come home having actually learned something!

IdeaLab is great entertaiment for kids! We booked a Science Wizardology party for 10 kids and they all loved it! The kids were very happy with the magic wands they made; and loved learning how to make slime! Samantha, the entertainer, was amazing with the kids; I’d recomend them 100%!!!!
Idea Lab Kids Calgary is the perfect after school plan for those curious and inventive kids willing to explore what science has to offer. My son is 9 years old and he is always excited to attend it. I recommend it � %

Subjects We Cover

Word from the Director

Adam Gockley has found himself a niche. With 10 years of child care experience and a degree in small business, he has combined his work experience with his education. He now currently runs the first Idea Lab Kids program outside of Houston, Tx.

His experience with youth comes from Summer Camps, athletic coaching, and classroom teaching. Following his graduation from Southwestern University, Adam returned to his high school alma mater to teach, coach, and dorm parent a dorm of 50 senior boys. This, in addition to his work with The Boys and Girls Club, has prepared him to take on the challenge of opening a new Idea Lab Kids program in a new city!

Adam continues to learn and grow with the Idea Lab in hopes of creating a program that grows to be nationwide. In his move to Austin, he has found himself very busy with all of the great outdoor recreational opportunities as well as the live music scene. His hope is to develop a program that meets the educational needs of Austin Families.
