- Robotics: With our cutting-edge robotics program, your child will have a blast building robots, as well as confidence and friendships. There’s no better challenge for young engineers than programming and bringing to life their own LEGO® robots.
- Engineering: What is one thing race cars and bridges have in common? To be built, they need dreamers and problem solvers — also known as engineers! In our engineering program, your child will take on the same types of challenges as real world engineers.
- Math Edge: Math is the foundation of every STEM subject, so we developed a program that makes learning core concepts more engaging and interesting than ever before. Activities including brainteasers, puzzles and proficiency challenges help kids hone problem-solving skills that will serve them well in the classroom and beyond.
