Snapology NYC - Classes


Snapology understands that children are meant to learn through play. When children are actively engaged in hands-on, interactive learning activities, their creativity flourishes and they show a greater interest in school. Snapology helps children (ages 2-14) grow up with a thirst for knowledge by engaging them using LEGO bricks, K’Nex and technology. While the kids are having fun, Snapology sneaks in the educational concepts. In most cases, kids don’t realize how much they are learning!

It’s a win-win. You provide your child with the opportunity to learn valuable S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) concepts, and they get to have a fantastic time.
