About IDEA Lab Kids
In 2011, entrepreneur and mother of three Ghazal Qureshi became interested in an after-school program that would provide an intellectually stimulating, hands-on educational experience for children—so she created IDEA Lab Kids.
IDEA Lab® Kids was founded as a way for kids to explore their love of science, technology, engineering, art and math subjects. The award-winning Houston-based education franchise offers after-school classes, camps, birthday parties, open labs and much more to children. The brand has positioned itself to be a leader in the growing STEAM education space with franchises in the US, Canada and Internationally. Idea Lab Kids franchises are only offered or sold in states where they are registered or compliant with applicable franchise laws.
An acronym for Innovate, Discover, Explore, Achieve, IDEA Lab Kids is an enrichment facility that offers diversified revenue streams through onsite after-school classes, pop-up workshops, birthday parties and summer camps. Instead of treating subjects as if they exist in solitary silos, IDEA Lab integrates disciplines to create a full STEAM environment.
