Our Engineering courses in the Columbia and Jefferson City 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. Watch your child’s creativity reach new heights as he or she builds these cool creations with a buddy and challenges other teams to fun competitions. Your child will be solving problems just like an engineer in no time — and developing vital 21st century skills too!
