For kids who love to build structures and figure out how things work, our Engineering programs in Okotoks might be just the thing they need to keep their imaginations engaged. Our interactive courses are a fun — and educational — way to inspire your son or daughter’s creativity while he or she learns a number of important engineering concepts. Your child will pair up with a buddy to work on exciting new projects each week, such as making a LEGO® machine or constructing one of the world’s seven bridge types out of K’NEX® pieces. It’s the ideal way to learn crucial 21st century skills that can have a positive effect in and beyond the classroom!
