Our Engineering programs in the Columbia and Jefferson City 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 take flight as he or she builds these complex structures with a partner and participates in fun games and friendly challenges against other teams. Your child will be solving problems just like an engineer in no time — and developing vital 21st century skills too!

Attention all Aspiring Engineers

From figuring out how to design complex structures to testing and tweaking them in order to come up with an improved solution, your child will be tackling problems just like a real engineer! Our practical, hands-on courses are an amazing way for your budding inventor to understand important science, engineering and architectural concepts while also using his or her imagination and creativity. Parents can join in on the fun too: we send out regular email communication to keep you in the loop every week. We also preview the following week’s project via email so you and your child can get excited for the next session!
