About Us

Our Philosophy

Lab 11235 is bringing family-friendly science and technology learning experiences to the greater Sacramento area. Recently, we’ve moved into our boutique location at 187 Blue Ravine Rd. #120, Folsom, CA. It’s been an amazing ride and we’ve have been blown away by the support of the Folsom community. Now, we’re on the hunt for our permanent space! It will house our junior maker space fully equipped with experimental labs and design challenge zones. Lab 11235 programs focus on empowering students to innovate with creativity, confidence and compassion. Similarly, our students are working on real-life projects is all we’re about! Our students are having a blast while learning skill sets that will last them a lifetime.
