Our Engineering courses in the Peoria and Bloomington region offer an unforgettable experience! 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!

21st Century Programs

Beyond being big on fun, our Engineering programs in the Peoria and Bloomington region are also designed to equip your child with valuable STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) abilities. Through creative activities, immersive learning and group collaboration, your child will build valuable problem solving and critical thinking competencies that can make a lasting impact both academically and personally!

Think Like a Real Engineer!

From building sophisticated structures to testing, deconstructing and redesigning them all over again with a better solution, your child will be thinking and problem solving like a real engineer!
