Our Engineering programs in the Rockford 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. Your child will get those creative juices flowing as he or she teams up with a buddy to build these awesome structures and challenges other teams to friendly games and competitions. It’s a fantastic way for your son or daughter to tackle challenges just like an engineer and acquire important 21st century skills along the way!
21st Century Programs
Beyond being big on fun, our Engineering programs in the Rockford 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!▼
Aspiring Engineers Unite!
From constructing complex structures to tweaking and rebuilding them in order to test out a better solution, your son or daughter will be solving problems like a real engineer in no time! Our practical, hands-on courses are an amazing way for your budding inventor to understand important science, engineering and architectural concepts while also using his or her imagination and creativity. We also keep parents informed by sending out regular communication, including a recap of each week’s project. We’ll also send a sneak peek of next week’s project so your family can get excited for the next activity!
