Build robots, design video games, learn to code and more at Snapology’s Discovery Centre in Downtown Milton! Through their exciting and diverse programs, kids can learn about science, technology, engineering, art and math (S.T.E.A.M.) in an environment that cultivates problem-solving skills and encourages collaboration. Kids learn by building various DUPLO®, LEGO® or K’Nex models and by applying the scientific method and engineering design process.
Snapology programs are delivered through entertaining and engaging activities in weekly classes, camps, workshops and even birthday parties! The franchise has developed over 60 programs in robotics, drones, video game design, coding, engineering, art and more. They are constantly looking to enhance programs and discover new activities that will teach kids something new.
Snapology of Halton-Mississauga, located at 310 Main St. Suite 107, is owned by Denise and Mark Tiley. The Milton pair also run a successful custom software firm in Milton. They loved the idea of starting a new business that allowed them to work with children and naturally gravitated towards STEM/STEAM education, knowing first-hand how the skill set opens doors to many opportunities. They purchased the award-winning franchise last August and soon began building their Discovery Centre.
“It is so rewarding to see children enjoy our program,” said Denise. They recently ran their first class and were ecstatic with how much the kids enjoyed it. “The best was hearing the parents say they [kids] couldn’t stop talking about their experience when they got home.”
In addition to providing fun programs for kids, Denise and Mark plan to have family-based activities like game nights and escape room challenges. They hope to partner with others in the community to attract more families downtown. They currently run Parent’s Night Out events so parents can go out on the town while their little ones participate in a 3-hour LEGO®Brick Fun workshop.
Snapology is very excited to open its doors and welcome the children and parents of Milton into their Makerspace and Discovery Centre! Registration for upcoming programs, including March Break Camp, is now open.
