Our Engineering programs in the Cedar Rapids, Waterloo and Dubuque region are designed for big time 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. 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!
Calling all Budding Engineers
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! 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. 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. We also preview the following week’s project via email so you and your child can get excited for the next session!
