Our EDGE Programs Include:

  • Engineering: Things like race cars, bridges, and high rise buildings wouldn’t exist without the problem solving skills of engineers. Your child will have the chance to develop those skills through fun, hands-on challenges like designing simple structures and machines.
  • Robotics & Science: Our innovative robotics program is the perfect place for budding engineers to make friends and build confidence while working on critical skills by building and programming their very own LEGO® robot.
  • Coding: Signing your child up for our coding program, which is full of cool, interactive projects like creating original video games, mini-stories and computer animations, is guaranteed to lead to lots of interesting stories and high-fives.
  • Math Edge: Since math is an important part of every STEM subject, we designed a program to make learning tricky math concepts easier — and more fun — than ever before. Kids will develop problem-solving skills essential for their future success with weekly brainteasers and puzzles.
