LIVINGSTON, NJ – My Tech Learning opened its new STEM EdVenture Lab at 45D East Northfield Road in Livingston. The new space offers year-long classes, vacation and summer camps and birthday parties for children ages 6 to 14.

"This is a very exciting time in science and technology, especially for children," said Karen Akinsanya, PhD, Founder and Chief Scientist. "Kids today are growing up in a world where science and technology touches almost every part of their lives. They are curious and eager to experiment, learn and innovate. Schools are offering STEM courses, but parents realize that their children want more. We welcome these curious young minds into our lab to explore math, physics, chemistry and life science topics and to investigate current and future applications.”
