Our Engineering courses in the Alexandria Region offer an unforgettable experience! 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’s creativity will soar to new levels as he or she works with a buddy to put together these unique creations and challenges other students to friendly games and competitions. Your child will be solving problems just like an engineer in no time — and developing vital 21st century skills too!
