Two moms expand Zaniac Greenwich STEM programs

NEW YORK CITY — Two moms who launched Zaniac Greenwich 18 months ago plan to expand to 10 campuses in New York City.

Zaniac is a national STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) franchise designed from the ground up to prioritize fun, to actively engage and integrate a multi-disciplinary approach to problem solving. Zaniac first entered the Northeast in December 2013 when Camilla Gazal and Flavia Naslausky opened the first campus in Greenwich, Conn.

Since opening in Greenwich, more than 500 students K-8 have signed up for Zaniac’s programs. About 300 students have signed up for Zaniac Greenwich’s summer camp, a 100-percent increase from last summer.

As the first-ever Zaniac franchisees, Gazal and Naslausky, both of whom are mothers with professional backgrounds in the financial services industry, pioneered the Zaniac franchise program and plan to continue expanding through a franchise deal set to bring additional locations to the New York Metropolitan region.

“As mothers and business professionals, we knew we wanted to open an enrichment center that was focused on STEM education,” Gazal said. “Witnessing first-hand the overwhelmingly positive impact Zaniac had on our own children confirmed our decision to bring the opportunity to other children throughout the region.”
