Our Engineering programs in the Champaign, Springfield and Decatur region are huge on 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. It’s a novel way for your son or daughter to develop critical 21st century skills while solving problems just like an engineer!
Is Your Child a Budding Engineer?
Whether it’s constructing intricate structures or rebuilding them all over again in order to try out an alternate solution, your son or daughter will be tackling challenges and solving problems just like a real engineer! Through our interactive programs, your aspiring engineer will learn important science, architectural and engineering concepts while powering up his or her imagination and creativity each and every week. We also get parents in on the fun by providing regular email communication to fill you in on the cool new projects your child worked on each week.
