Learning is about to get amped up. Zaniac, a national STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) after-school enrichment center where learning feels like play, will open its first Texas campus in Southlake on March 31.
Located at 445 W. Southlake Blvd., Zaniac offers programs and camps that get kids excited about math and science while preparing them for 21st century jobs. The bright, colorful campus features glass-walled classrooms with white boards and large multimedia screens as well as a variety of tools to engage students in real-world applications of STEM subjects.
The Southlake campus is owned and operated by local entrepreneur Anne Sinnott, who is combining her love of science and business to prepare students for the jobs of tomorrow. Sinnott holds two Masters degrees in neuroscience and business administration, and prior to opening Zaniac, she was a neuro-oncology researcher and the co-founder of a supplement company which she then took public.
“I have three kids of my own, so I am passionate about exposing our young generation to STEM education early on, before they even reach high school,” said Sinnott via press release. “Zaniac is the perfect complement to our great education system here in Southlake and the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It offers a fun and engaging environment to learn and explore STEM outside of a classroom, and gives children the opportunity to discover what fields excite them for their future.”
