ENGINEERING FOR KIDS

Junior engineering programs are designed for children ages 4 to 7 and teach basic science, technology, engineering, and math skills along with social skills and collaboration skills. They consist of both self-guided and teacher-led projects to ensure that your child is learning in a fun, safe environment. Our apprentice programs are designed for students between the ages of 8 and 12. The activities that are offered in these programs allow kids to build, test, and improve their very own creations.
