IQuest Global Enrichment Center
Some of the hyper-interactive classes at IQuest Global Enrichment Center cover subjects kids might encounter in school—math, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese—but others challenge them to use their critical thinking skills in totally different ways. Some sessions teach kids to create YouTube-appropriate digital films, while others focus on engineering simple machines from Legos, rather than from a little brother and an extra-large hamster wheel. Groups are kept small and, whenever possible, surrounded by innovative technological tools in a space where goldfish float near the ceiling and a map of the world sprawls across the floor.
