Our EDGE Programs Include:
- Math Edge: Making math interesting and engaging for kids is essential since it is the foundation all STEM subjects are built on. Our brain-exercising activities — like puzzles, brainteasers and progress challenges — will help your child develop solid problem-solving skills he or she needs in and out of the classroom.
- Coding: You can look forward to your child coming home with plenty of exciting stories when you register him or her for our coding program, which includes cool, interactive challenges like building video games, and coming up with computer animations.
- Engineering: Engineers make things like race cars, sprawling bridges and the highest of skyscrapers possible. With our engineering program, your child will learn how to turn his or her dreams into reality with hands-on activities and challenges that develop their problem-solving skills.
- Robotics & Science: Robots, friendships and confidence are only a few of the things your child will be building with our cutting-edge robotics program. Not to mention, building and bringing his or her very own LEGO® robot to life is the perfect challenge for any young, budding engineer.
