Our EDGE Programs Include:
- Robotics: Your child will build robots and confidence with our innovative robotics program in which students construct and program LEGO® robots.
- Coding: High-fives and exciting stories are the natural result of our coding program, which features super cool projects like designing animations, video games and mini-stories.
- Engineering: Buildings, bridges and race cars don't design themselves: they need engineers! Your child will enjoy hands-on challenges and learn how to build simple machines.
- Math Edge: Math is a crucial component of all STEM subjects, so we make it more interactive and exciting (yes, really!) than ever. In fact, our brain-boosting tasks, puzzles and challenges enable kids to develop math abilities they can use at school and in everyday life.
