Who Are These CRE8IVE Folks Anyway?
We are fun loving Cre8ive people, and one of our goals is to make your visit memorable. When we are not demonstrating hands-on exhibits, facilitating workshops or hosting your parties, you’ll probably find us pursuing our other interests… Read our bio below…

Instructor & Science Coordinator
Ms. Ellen Vedas.has a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Valdosta State University and is currently, working towards a Master of Science degree. I believe instilling knowledge, and especially the knowledge of science in children is critical. This, in my opinion, gives children an advantage in life. I love working with children and teaching/tutoring!
Outside of my work here at the Cre8tive Zone, I love spending time with my nephew and inspiring him to pursue his education, I enjoy the outdoors, am close with my family, and love my pets!
