If your son or daughter can't stop tinkering with machines and building new structures, it might be time to register for our Engineering program in Oakville. Kids in our interactive courses have fun, make new friends and demonstrate their creativity while mastering a variety of important engineering concepts. Buddying up with a partner, kids take on a new project each session, such as designing and building one of seven possible bridge types using K’NEX® pieces or constructing a machine with LEGO® bricks. It’s a great way to establish a foundation of strong skills your child will need for success in the 21st century classroom and beyond!
Build Essential STEM Skills
Learning useful STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills is more fun when your child has the opportunity to design his or her own creations and learn the ins and outs of constructing models in our Engineering courses in Oakville. There's also plenty of collaboration, hands-on learning and wrap-up activities, enabling your son or daughter to also improve his or her critical thinking and problem solving skills.
