Nadia Lynn Burke5They have programs for kids as young as 4 and they also offer preschool for ages 2-6 in addition to their after school offerings Love this place
Samantha Cohen Condon5I found this newly up and running STEM program recently and after speaking to the owner and program director, I signed my kids up for a very affordable week of camp. The projects and activities were thoughtful, fun, high technology, and impressive. Coding, 3D print work, slime making, stop motion animation to name a few. The program director, Dacey, has a background in special ed, which made the program feel welcome to all learning styles. With the recently extended summer break, I thought I would share. Their facility is in Marlborough, but I believe they are trying to work to provide programs on site in Westborough.
Paula Fritts Brown5Did you know that clouds are NOT just composed of water vapor? They can also be composed of frozen ice particles! That’s just one of the things my 6 year-old daughter taught me while attending summer camp at PinkyInc. She’s reluctant to leave when I come to pick her up and insists on excitedly walking me through PinkyInc’s amazing workspace, demonstrating all the projects she worked on that day before she feels ready to leave. When I finally cajole her out of the building, it’s a 20 minute fact-filled drive home. Their amazing staff is warm, encouraging and flexible and their creative and well-planned projects span a wide range of topics, from storytelling to robotics. I’m impressed by how they adapt projects to the levels of the individual learners and support them in trying out new things, gently encouraging them to venture outside their comfort zones. I am so grateful that my daughter could participate in this quality program and recommend PinkyInc without any reservation.
Jenn Hetzel Brown5My 9 year old son has gone to the PinkyInc. camp (and a few of the individual classes) all summer and he truly enjoys them. This is the first camp he’s gone to where he actually looks forward to going. They have many interesting programs and they keep the children fully engaged. I highly recommend the camp and classes!
Phil Raymond5This is not just another after school program. This one is truly different...
The director is a high tech entrepreneur with a can-do spirit that spreads his passion for critical thinking, risk taking and the scientific method. Children are not treated like children. They are apprentices in the artchitectire, design, and construction of fascinating and non-trivial projects. They are not simply taught to follow a design, they think it out for themselves—along with expert guidance and encouragement.
The teachers are just as outstanding as the founder. Together, they share a vision for independant analysis and they help children to move beyond texting, internet and screen games. With PikyInc, the future for families with children and pre-teens looks pretty darn good.
Yulia Boukhatem5My daughter attended a week long camp at Pinky Inc and she absolutely loved it! Every day she was very excited about going in and at the end of the day she wouldn't stop talking about all the interesting things that she did there. She is asking me to sign her up again next summer. I highly recommend it!
Julie Sloniger Brown5Attended the open house event and my kids loved it. They could not get enough of the different STEAM activities offered, especially the robots and the 3D pens! The staff supported the kids but also did a great job of letting them explore/problem solve on their own. The space is well designed, very clean and welcoming. We will definitely look into signing up for future classes.
Tatyana Likerman5What a cool place! Rafa had such fun crafting, building and playing with friends. The instructors kept the kids engaged the entire time. The space is clean, bright and comfortable. We can't wait to return.
Anna Barenboym5Great birthday party. Staff very friendly and kids did not want to stop exploring. Very excited about attending summer camp. The place is new and very clean. Love
Kristen Culver5As a former scientist, I appreciate how Pinky Inc works with children at an early age to develop their STEM skills. More programs like theirs are needed all over Massachusetts which is known for its science, technology & engineering professions.
