For kids who love to build structures and figure out how things work, our Engineering programs in Hiawatha might be just the thing they need to keep their imaginations engaged. Our interactive courses are a fun and educational way for your child to learn a variety of engineering concepts while firing up his or her creativity. 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 a great way to establish a foundation of strong skills your child will need for success in the 21st century classroom and beyond!
