Our Engineering programs in the Champaign, Springfield and Decatur region are huge on fun! Your son or daughter will have a great time tackling a new interactive project each week, including building, testing and rebuilding bridges and machines using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Your child’s creativity will soar to new levels as he or she works with a buddy to put together these unique creations and challenges other students to friendly games and competitions. Your child will be solving problems just like an engineer in no time — and developing vital 21st century skills too!

Is Your Child a Budding Engineer?

From constructing multifaceted structures to testing and rebuilding them in order to try out a different solution, your son or daughter will be taking on challenges just like a real engineer! Our hands-on programs are a fun and innovative way to help your eager inventor understand essential science, architectural and engineering concepts while getting creative and firing up his or her imagination in the process. Parents won’t be missing out on the fun either: we send regular email communication so you can stay informed of your child’s progress. We’ll also preview the following week’s project so you and your child can gear up for the next fun activity!
