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 Ottawa. Our sessions focus on fun and friendship, helping kids fire up their creativity as they explore 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 the ideal way to learn crucial 21st century skills that can have a positive effect in and beyond the classroom!
Develop Critical STEM Skills
With our Engineering courses in Ottawa, not only will your child have a blast building, deconstructing and experimenting with cool creations, but he or she will also learn valuable STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts along the way! Your son or daughter will also leave with improved critical thinking and problem solving skills thanks to plenty of hands-on, collaborative activities. Register today to give your child a jump-start towards success!▼
