I Know Science is a modern immersive retail experience for families in South Florida. Our Miami-Dade and Broward locations offer an unparalleled selection of high quality, gender neutral toys built to engage big thinkers and create lasting, joyful moments.
We host a plethora of purposeful, interactive programs in The Lab that mobilize our passion for science, sustainability, and innovation. Our Chemistry Birthday Parties, Science Camp, Afterschool Labs, and Monthly Special Events give our scientists the resources and support to explore scientific phenomena across all fields with the guidance of our outstanding lab instructor team.
Additionally, we support our local schools in their effort to improve their science programs through our in-house science field trips, mobile labs, as well as, the IKS professional development option geared towards modernizing science education in schools.
Our team mindfully creates a welcoming environment whether our customers are coming in to celebrate a birthday party, stay for the day to enjoy camp, or whether they’re picking up the perfect gift for their favorite child.
We believe in creating and maintaining a positive vibe where kids are encouraged to play creatively and explore. We love our customers to touch and feel the toys we have available at our toy store. Our goal is to build each Toy Store and Sci-Lab with the same vibe inciting the imagination and individuality of kids, free of archaic gender prejudices, a place where kids explore through play and experience the joy of learning through purposeful toys and meaningful programs.
Building Vital Learning Skills Through Science
The main aim of the IKS curriculum is to promote the love and joy of learning through science. Play is used to successfully engage our kids in the process of learning. Complex science concepts are introduced, broken-down and paired with fun hands-on experiments. The result, easing comprehension and increasing their love for learning through science.
The Serious Business of Channeled Play and the Relation to Experiencing the Joy of Learning
It is a fact that children love to PLAY. The IKS curriculum is revolutionary in that its design derives from understanding that very key factor. The IKS strategy is to guide their play with highly enjoyable tasks and goals. We use the field of science as a vessel to not only expose them to science but to develop good social habits, collaboration, persistence, respect, communication and more. The IKS curriculum is highly entertaining and engaging. Kids become motivated to constantly refine and improve on their tasks hence increase the challenge, ultimately become more powerful learners.
As kids and families partake in the IKS experience, they are, without a doubt, not only able to build better proficiency towards science and engineering practices but enjoy being in a positive, friendly, fun and purposeful environment.
We are driven and motivated by the IKS vision of creating a conducive and all-around positive environment where creativity abounds, cooperation is encouraged and exemplified and where kids participate in channeled purposeful activities, programs, and events promoting the joy of learning along with healthy and happy development.
