Today, there are a plethora of programs available for children interested in things like gymnastics or theater (which are great!). What about for children interested in things like chess or robotics, though? Until recently, the options for extracurricular Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) activities have been slim.
Seven years ago, South Jersey Innovation Center’s (SJIC) founder, Dov Gorman, recognized this problem. This is why he created SJIC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting STEM. At SJIC, there is a huge emphasis on innovation (hence the name South Jersey Innovation Center). It aims to create an outlet for intellectually curious children starting at the age of five. SJIC’s classes are designed to feed students’ curiosity by creating an environment where they can be surrounded by other kids interested in learning, and explore their interests at a deeper level than they could have otherwise. Don’t just listen to this, though. Parents have raved about the classes. They have called SJIC “the happiest place in South Jersey,” and “a place where children can learn new skills and knowledge.”
From 3D printing to Virtual Reality, SJIC tries to offer something for everyone. SJIC intends to continue growing and rolling out more classes on an ongoing basis.
