Our Engineering programs in the Birmingham, Anniston and Tuscaloosa region are designed for big time fun! Your child will have a blast diving into a new hands-on project each week, like designing, testing and redesigning machines and bridges using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Watch your child’s creativity take flight as he or she builds these complex structures with a partner and participates in fun games and friendly challenges against other teams. Equipping your child with these skills can help make a big impact not only in school and college, but also in future careers.
