Our Engineering programs in the Minneapolis region are designed for big time fun! Your son or daughter can expect to complete a different hands-on project each week, including designing, testing and tweaking bridges and machines using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. 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. It’s a fantastic way for your child to learn how to problem-solve just like an engineer and get equipped with 21st century skills in the process!
