Kaleidoscope Enrichment’s mission is simple: to make science, engineering, technology and maker education exciting through innovative programs and fun, hands-on activities.
We want all learners to feel inspired and be creative. We teach kids to understand science deeply and intuitively. Our students learn by building, touching, playing, and making. At Kaleidoscope, we guide our students through their explorations — supporting them in failure and success — and making sure each one knows they have within them the power to change their world.
With offerings from robotics to spa science, any student aged 5-15 can find something to love. Kaleidoscope makes after-school enrichment, in-school assemblies, clubs and scouts easy by bringing the science to you. We provide everything — all the materials, background information, and safety equipment — needed to make your programs a success.
After School Programs
After-school enrichment programs offer a wonderful opportunity for students to self-select activities that are meaningful to them while building academic and social skills. Without the pressures of grading and testing, many children feel freed to reach beyond their comfort zone and explore. Kaleidoscope programs give students the opportunity to challenge themselves while having the support, guidance, and leadership they need to feel successful. Available at schools, libraries, churches, community centers and more!
Home School Activities
Kaleidoscope knows that homeschooling is a dynamic, exciting way to both teach and learn. Because homeschoolers have so many diverse needs and methods, we offer programs that can be adapted to accommodate a variety of age ranges, learning styles and educational goals. Kaleidoscope programs offer flexible program pacing, group sizes, and content. We’ll listen to your needs and customize activities for your student, family or group.
Scouts & Clubs
Need help on a science badge? Want an exciting program for the next meeting? Have an event coming up and need activities? Kaleidoscope can help. As scouting parents ourselves, we know what it takes to keep kids interested and happy. Because we’ve worked with groups both big and small, in a wide variety of situations, so you can rely on Kaleidoscope to make your club or scouting activity fun, manageable and educational.
In School Classes
Kaleidoscope is always a winner in the classroom. We take the prep work out of big projects or special events. Our programs are aligned with NGSS, so you know they’ll fit your lesson plans. Our instructors have had background checks and been fingerprinted by the state. We also offer exciting assembly programs, perfect for holidays and the end of the year. If you need assessment activities or other support, just let us know.
Kaleidoscope offers a wide variety of summer activities that can be customized for your location. We offer everything from week-long Maker Camps to informal Science and Swim activities — and everything in between. For example, many of our standard programs can be customized to the needs of summer daycare programs as well. Kaleidoscope is also the perfect choice for your outdoor fair, festival, market or event, offering many different craft, science, engineering and naturalist experiences to draw in families.
Do you know kids that love to create, build and innovate? Kids who love science, technology & engineering? Maker Camp is a completely unique experience to help them develop cutting-edge skills, explore STEM, make friends and HAVE FUN. Maker Camp is the ultimate Do-It-Yourself, Do-It-Your-Way camp for kids. Drawing from the exciting worldwide Maker Movement, students will try a variety of projects — from electronics to mechanical devices, crazy crafts to high-tech design — learning how each works along the way.
Make your next festival or event extra-special with a Kaleidoscope Science Station or Mobile Maker Lab. While parents explore and relax, the kids will be entertained as they learn science, engineering and more. We'll customize our activities to fit your event's theme. Every child will go home with a project they completed. Budget tight? Ask us about our pro-bono offerings.
Kaleidoscope offers exciting parties full of hands-on, take-home projects. We have something for everyone — serene spa science, messy mad science, crazy engineering challenges, creative duct tape crafts and more! No matter what the age or interest, Kaleidoscope parties are always a hit. And we make it easy: we’ll come to your home or other location with everything but the food. Our parties are very budget-friendly, with a variety of pricing options and add-ons that make your party one-of-a-kind!
Kaleidoscope also provides excellent tutoring in math and science for children grades 4 and up. Whether your student needs a bit of a brush up before finals, a summer refresher or special needs help, we can pair you with a reasonably priced tutor to meet in your home or at our office.
