Zaniac, an after-school institute in Salt Lake City, has launched its newest STEM course, Fashion Design, which will be offered at campuses nationwide starting August 10, 2015, the institute said in a press release.

At Zaniac, fashionistas don't just follow the trends, they master the skills to create them. Zaniac is a national STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) enrichment franchise for students in grades K-8, where learning feels like play.

In Fashion Design course, students from fourth to eighth grades will create their own one-of-a-kind looks using the open-source vector graphics software Inkscape. This tool will help budding designers assemble digital mood boards, draw custom garments using vectors, arrange nodes and layer color palettes. Upon completion of the programme, students will be able to share their very own fashion collection with their friends and family, the release said.

“Our Fashion Design programme allows kids to explore digital modeling concepts, truly helping them grasp the skills required for digital design in the fashion industry,” said Zaniac president and chief academic officer Sidharth Oberoi. “We believe that pairing technology and individual creativity ignites students' interest in education because they are doing something they love while learning necessary 21st century skills.”

Zaniac currently has two campuses open in Salt Lake City and Park City, Utah, in addition to franchises in Miami, Florida, and Greenwich, Connecticut. The fast-growing franchise will open additional campuses in California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York later this year.

According to the statement, the new Fashion Design program is a 90-minute class that meets once a week for six weeks, and the five-to-one student to instructor ratio ensures a personalized, peer-based educational experience.

Zaniac also offers a multitude of other STEM learning programs that get kids excited to learn math and science while preparing them for 21st century jobs, including Zaniac Robotics: Lego, Game-Based Learning: Minecraft, App Creation, 3D Printing and Computer Programming. (SH)
