Our Engineering programs in the Chicagoland 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. 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. It’s an exciting way for your child to solve problems just like an engineer and develop valuable 21st century skills in the process!

Attention all Aspiring Engineers

From designing and building cool structures to tweaking and rebuilding them to test out a different approach, your child will be solving challenges just like a real engineer! Our hands-on programs are a fantastic way for your budding inventor to gain a solid grasp of engineering, science and architectural concepts while also igniting his or her imagination and creativity along the way. Parents are kept in the loop through our regular email communication, so you can see your child’s progress and celebrate his or her achievements. We will also provide a preview of the upcoming week’s project so you and your child can gear up for the next cool activity!
