At AlligatorZone® youngsters learn problem-solving through direct interaction with startups and their products, in a shared experience with their parents and guardians. They also learn about various real-world applications of STEM and STEAM principles to solve real-world problems by real entrepreneurs from their area. AlligatorZone® is not kid-stuff. Startups curated to present at AlligatorZone® are chosen from across disciplines.
AlligatorZone’s free event-series in public libraries make for not just an uplifting outing for a family, but also a joyous gathering of the entire community at a local public library joining to celebrate and participate in local innovation in a unique and exciting manner.
Our mission is to bring AlligatorZone® as a free event-program to youngsters in every community with a public library or a community center that welcomes such programs to inspire youngsters about careers that very likely don’t yet exist. Contact us to bring AlligatorZone® to your locality.
To make the free event-program of AlligatorZone® self-sustaining, AlligatorZone® Academy has been created, offering premium summer workshops and after-school enrichment programs for young students.
