Our Range of EDGE Programs in Sherwood Park:
- Robotics & Science: 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.
