In Bricks 4 Kidz hands-on programs, kids can learn to build anything from a motorized amusement park to a duck. But the building blocks aren't real bricks—they're LEGO blocks. Each of the company's summer camps, after-school classes, and birthday parties center around building themed LEGO model plans, designed by engineers and architects. By building structures that fit a zoo theme or a Minecraft theme—or by creating Lego scenes for stop-motion animation—kids learn science and math, teamwork, and problem solving skills, while having fun and getting their masters in LEGO architecture along the way.
The Rockwell County program is helmed by husband and wife team Kevin and Natalie Shepherd, who share a passion for educating children in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) subjects. To lead the program they utilize Natalie's background in counseling and play therapy, Kevin's knowledge as a practicing engineer, and their experiences parenting their daughter Sydney.
While many people might only think to use lasers to thwart tuxedo-wearing spies, Rockwall Laser Center uses them to help clients feel beautiful and confident?tuxedo or not. There, a staff of technicians?all of whom are certified by the Texas Department of State Health Service and most of whom are Certified Senior Laser Technicians?uses versatile lasers to remove unwanted hair, fight the signs of aging, and treat acne. The crew are also experts at removing unwanted tattoos, having removed a staggering 40,000 by 2013. The center's services also extend beyond the beam. During micro-needling therapy, aestheticians use a cartridge filled with precisely spaced, microscopic needles to create tiny perforations in the skin that jump-start healing processes, thereby helping to firm skin, soften fine lines, and banish little-brother cooties.
Like the bat signal beckons the caped crusader to fight crime, a phone call, online application, or text message alerts Image Dry Cleaners's fleet of roving drivers to tackle insidious laundry. With garment bags flapping in the wind, they gather sullied coats, blouses, suits, and linens such as comforters, tablecloths, and tapestries from a designated pickup spot, carting the items back to their base free of charge. There, they oust grime and stains, returning fresh, squeaky-clean fabrics to doorsteps three days later, or customers can affix a note to laundry bags requesting next-day drop-off without incurring additional fees. In addition to expediting the cleaning process, staff members alter ensembles, repair shoes, restore leather, and preserve bridal dresses so that new wives can memorialize wedding days without attempting to cryogenically freeze their maid of honor.
Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning Center’s numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chests. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids feel more comfortable in the classroom. After-school or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or wow college admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.
