Our Engineering programs in the Detroit region are designed for big time fun! 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. Watch your child’s creativity flourish and confidence soar as he or she teams up with a partner to build these cool structures and participates in fun games and friendly competitions with other students. Your child will be solving problems just like an engineer in no time — and developing vital 21st century skills too!

Is There an Aspiring Engineer in Your Family?

From building sophisticated structures to testing, deconstructing and redesigning them all over again with a better solution, your child will be thinking and problem solving 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. Parents can also have fun learning about the cool new things students learned in class through our regular email communication. We also send a preview of the upcoming week’s project so you and your son or daughter can gear up for what’s next!
