Our Mission

our mission

Brainy Bytes was born out of a passion to provide children with fun and exciting ways to learn, create and invent in the world of technology. Our goal is to make a difference in the lives of our licensees, the students they teach, and their communities. We proudly provide challenging, thoughtful instruction in STEM through after-school programs, summer camps, birthday parties, and a variety of group workshops. We ensure quality, consistency and a give-back philosophy among all our licensees. Brainy Bytes will work tirelessly to provide our locations and their families with the research, development, and guidance they need so that they may continue to make a difference and thrive in their communities.

Meet the Team


I am so thrilled to have the privilege of introducing families to this incredible program... your children (and your community) are going to love it!

Ena Hackaday - Founder & CEO

After 13 years in the financial industry, my husband and I decided it was in our family's best interest for me to leave my corporate management career to take care of our two children. When our oldest child turned 9, I took advantage of being at home and began homeschooling. He is now a successful college student and I still homeschool my high school daughter. We are blessed to be able to nurture our family and enjoy the accomplishments of a successful business all at the same time.

It was this passion to encourage learning, and our own son's desire to learn about game making, that led us and motivated us to fill an obvious need in technology education for kids in our area. In 2010, after much prayer and preparation, we decided to bring Brainy Bytes™ to Cherokee County. Soon, we were stretching into neighboring Cobb County and offering these amazing classes to even more "hungry to learn" kids! 🙂 We continue to be the areas leading choice in quality STEM education (and fun) because of our commitment to offering innovative, one-of-kind courses and our personal attention to our families and community.

In 2018 we passed on the reins of our flagship location to a licensee so we could focus on a greater ambition; to help others make a difference in their communities nationwide. 

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men. - Colossians 3:23 (NIV)
