Hobby Quest’s – “Photography Journeys” – – Grade K-5

Journeys program is an exciting after-school program for young photographers. Our eight sessions will task students with exploring their world and expressing their experiences through the camera lens. Students will learn to set up photos and manipulate them on the go. Session highlights include crafting a cubist collage of an object, setting up a still life image using the “rule of thirds”, and a photojournalist excursion. The class concludes with a gallery show in which students will display each of their works in print.

Our Story

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.


Innovative Learning

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.


Brainiax Beliefs

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.



My daughters took a class here and had the best time! They were so excited about all the different activities and begged me to sign them up again!

My 6 year old son took a LEGO class and a Dinosaur class and loved both! He had a blast and learned a lot! The teachers are great and the facility is so nice. We look forward to many more classes at Brainiax!
