Impulse Labs is a learning space that promotes the use of science and technology to create interesting and, sometimes, silly things. 

Our classes for children support the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) curriculum through a wide variety of tools that encourages the children to use what they learn while still giving them the space to experiment and to explore their imagination.

We work with local schools to provide classes at their location. We currently offer classes to students at the following schools - 

P.S. 11 Purvis J. Behan School419 Waverly Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238

The Co-op School, 40 Brevoort Pl, Brooklyn, NY 11216

Classes at PS11 and the Co-op school are only available to students enrolled at those schools.

If you would like to have these classes offered at a school you are affiliated with, please contact us.
