Have you ever wished you studied math or science more when you were younger – how much these subjects, with constantly changing technology, are integral to your own adult life?
Zaniac is a new after-school, extra-curricular program in Jersey City aimed to intrigue students K-8 to dig deeper into these subjects. Like how to code computer programs or how to build video games – not just play them.
Added bonus: Acquiring these skills at an early age is obviously a good thing for future life success, but Zaniac’s curriculum may encourage children who don’t like typical classroom settings to start to enjoy learning – and perhaps gain more confidence.
The Jersey City campus on 125 First Street opens its doors June 3. Read about some of the programs here.
