If your son or daughter can't stop tinkering with machines and building new structures, it might be time to register for our Engineering program in Ames. With interactive and educational exercises, our courses will promote creativity while also teaching essential engineering concepts. Kids work on different projects every week, teaming up with a partner to design and build K’NEX® bridges or complicated LEGO® machines. It’s a great way to establish a foundation of strong skills your child will need for success in the 21st century classroom and beyond!
