Year Round Leagues

Robotics leagues provide a safe environment for teamwork and individual growth while enhancing social development, improving self-esteem, and helps in giving kids a sense of belonging.

Elementary and middle school-aged students research a real-world engineering challenge, develop a solution, and compete with LEGO-based robots of their own design.

Chess Leagues for all levels from Beginner to Advanced. Studies prove that playing chess improves your memory. Students who had never before played chess see improvement in their memories and verbal skills after only playing a few months of Chess.

Watch Idea Lab Kids with Debra Duncan @ Great Day Houston

I am a doctor parent and was excited about when i heard about medical doctors camps with idea lab. There are two times in our son’s life–BEFORE Idea Camps and AFTER. Our kid went from a smart and engaged elementary schooler to a worldly and intellectually curious critical thinker. He did medical doctors camp and I was amazed how much he learned in one weeks. Idea lab has kept their curriculum evolving as per students need, this was 2nd summer and look forward to several more. !”

Summer Camp #best camp ever

Abaigeal Ackerman, CC Family Physicians Group, Houston, TX

My daughter attended IDEA Lab girls scout event and it was unique and fun way to do team building among kids. They also re-iterated their pledge. It created a long lasting impression on kids, it’s was a huge hit! At the end they all got the badges. We look forward to come coming back for summer camps.

Team Building Scout Events

Maya Graham, Heights, TX

We signed up for messy scientist, it allowed my son to put his hands at work using science tools and process skills to explore the world of rocks and building things. Our son always looks forward to spending time with his friends at IDEA Lab and when we see a smile on his face as he gets ready to go to or is coming home from the program, it reassures us that the time he has spent away from us has been well spent.

Messy Scientist Preschool

Shetty Family, New Territory HOA, TX

We did Idealab robotics league Many valuable lessons were learnt. One important lesson which will stick with me will have to be time management. The core values that the Ideal lab FLL has promoted along with the team building, mentoring and skills that the kids have been exposed to have been things I personally feel every kid should be exposed to and embrace. Along the way I got to spend some serious quality time with my own kids as a parent and see how they handled group situations, problems, presentations and a lot of things I have to deal with in my work. The price was very reasonable to make our first step.

We were a skeptic of having STEM Birthday Party at home, but having the Idea lab Van, here made this year’s birthday party so much more fun!  We did Drones party at our house. Everybody loved it – the kids, the parent helpers and all!  The best was circuitry confusion among kids and finally flying FPV drone and all the kids had such an awesome time!”, this was the best idea ever since we can have our own food/decoration and customize the activities based on Son’s interest.

Mobile Party that flies drone

John Mayer, Pearland, TX

I threw my son Amir 5th cooking birthday party with you guys and it was amazing. It was my first time being there with my kids and they loved it along with the guest that attended the party as well. The host Ebin was wonder-ful nice and very friendly. He let me know everything that was taken place he didn’t leave us clueless and I want to thank him again. I give you guys 5 stars and will be back with my children and look forward to planning more birthday parties with you guys. From the bottom of my heart thanks again for showing us a wonderful time. Thank you!!!

Best Birthday Party Ever

Ibrahim Hashim, Sugar land, TX

My son enrolled here in the fall for 3 days/week and changed to 5 days/week as he loves and insisted on going every-day. The teachers are great and the projects are fun. Idea lab has worked so hard year after year to bring in new ideas. I did not want my son to just go learn about numbers and learn reading. They do really cool science experiments with the kids and the one we remember is slimy creation and organic material. They teach the kids to love learning. It is exposing them to so much cool stuff that when they see it later on in middle school they will already be comfortable! Best decision I ever made as a parent was sending him here!

Afterschool Program

You see lots of places springing up calling themselves STEM schools, but they don’t necessarily have a clearly articulated explanation of what makes them STEM or STEAM or STEAM+. We are working with Idea Lab kids for 3 years and our partnership has been great.By giving our kids the tools they need to succeed in STEAM, we are giving them a huge leg up as they enter the job market. But when we think STEM, we think middle school and high school, robotics and chemistry—not first graders and them doing it. IDEA Lab has made it happen to us for elementary school goers. We have rotated their classes year after year kids have enjoyed all of them so far.
