Brainiax Beliefs

We believe that young minds are creative and uninhibited — that’s why our Brainiax program is geared for young children up through elementary school.

By introducing our curriculum to parents and young children, families will be encouraged to embrace creativity and innovation. Hands-on tinkering and engineering benefits people of all ages as it boosts confidence, reduces academic anxiety, increases teamwork skills and drives motivation to learn new skills.

Prepares children to meet the higher order standards set forth in the Core Curriculum Standards. Highly recommend. Run by a director who truly is invested in the education of children, and what it means to provide high quality programming.

My son took a lego class at Brainiax he was thrilled about this class before it started and was even more excited after class. He had a great time, and had lots of new information to share afterwards. He is excited about returning and keeps asking when he can go next! My husband and I are also so excited for a new business like Brainiax- it is def what the town to Livingston needed! Can’t wait to sign my daughter up also.

My son took the trial LEGO class and had such a great time! He loved that the room was set up with stations to try different LEGO projects and areas of free play. He especially enjoyed the challenges at each activity (and I loved that he was learning scientific concepts while he thought he was just playing!). He can’t wait to take a class in the Fall!

STE[A]M, What is it? Why Brainiax feels it’s important?

STE[A]M stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. 

Brainiax fosters children’s development of STEAM skills by providing learning opportunities and materials that support exploration and discovery.  

STE[A]M’s five subject areas share a common approach and focus; they require gathering and using evidence to create knowledge or solve problems. Research shows there is a positive relationship between early STE[A]M experiences and future success in school.
