KSL: Zaniac brings STEM to kids at The Road Home

By Jed Boal,
"SALT LAKE CITY — A couple dozen youngsters at the Road Home homeless shelter got pretty excited tonight as they explored fun with science and technology.

It was a chance for them to learn important educational skills while having a blast building robots, sound synthesizers and bridges made of toothpicks and marshmallows.

"We're really preparing them for their futures in the 21st century," said Sidharth Oberoi, the co-founder of Zaniac, the after-school science and technology program that put on the program at the shelter. 

Zaniac aims to light the fire of curiosity by letting the kids jump right into projects. Science, technology, engineering and math — or STEM subjects — are a main focus of education, because those are real-world skills that lead to good jobs."
