About AtomzLab:

International studies show that the United States continues to lag behind other countries in students' knowledge of science and math. The poor rankings for U.S. students in these major tests provide alarming evidence that most of our students are not being prepared for a world that is shaped by science and technology. Many people in the United States understand that in order for our society to remain competitive in an advanced technological era, good science education is critical. AtomzLab fills that void - using fun, engaging activities that appeal to children of all ages. AtomzLab is available as an after-school program in a number of schools throughout Union County, offers field-trips and homeschool programs and is one of the BEST birthday parties in the Charlotte-area.
