Skills That Can Be Used Time and Again
We understand that STEM skills are becoming increasingly valued — and we know how to empower kids to get on the right path to future success. Our STEM-based programs — Robotics, Coding, Engineering and Math Edge — zero in on important 21st century competencies like advanced math, logic and computer programming. That means kids will have fun and make friends while also developing skills that will help them succeed in a range of modern career paths. That’s how fun today can lead to success tomorrow.
Our EDGE Programs Include:
- Robotics: Robot building, friendship building, confidence building… It's all here. In fact, programming and animating LEGO® robots is a great challenge for future coders.
- Coding: Smiles and high-fives follow when you register your child for our coding program. He or she can expect cool projects like designing video games, creating mini-stories and making computer animations.
- Engineering: Race cars and bridges don’t build themselves, so we prepare budding engineers with a variety of hands-on challenges, such as building working prototypes and designing amazing bridges.
- Math Edge: Math is part of every STEM subject, and our program makes it more interactive and exciting (yes, really!) than ever. It includes stimulating activities that help kids hone strong problem-solving skills that are practical in and beyond the classroom.
