Debra Kirchen — a teacher, mother and experienced business owner — founded Brainiax – Innovative Learning Center. She recognized that her community was in need of more hands-on engineering education for her own children. Debra has worked hard to construct a safe, well-structured and fun environment for all children. Our ultimate goal is to expand the social skills, confidence, academic knowledge and problem-solving skills of the next generation.
Brainiax provides STE[A]M and hands-on learning programs for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and students in Kindergarten through 5th grade.
Our program presents hands-on access to science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics in order to build crucial problem-solving and teamwork skills.
We believe that young minds are creative and uninhibited — that’s why our Brainiax program begins for children as young as 6 months.
By introducing our curriculum to parents and young children, families will be encouraged to embrace creativity and innovation. Hands-on engineering benefits people of all ages as it boosts confidence, reduces academic anxiety, increases teamwork skills and drives motivation to learn new skills.
