If your son or daughter loves building structures and tinkering with machines, then our Engineering programs in Ames could be exactly what you need to help your child’s imagination soar! Our interactive courses are a fun — and educational — way to inspire your son or daughter’s creativity while he or she learns a number of important engineering concepts. Buddying up with a partner, kids take on a new project each session, such as designing and building one of seven possible bridge types using K’NEX® pieces or constructing a machine with LEGO® bricks. It’s an effective way to get comfortable with 21st century skills that are critical for success in the classroom and beyond!
