Our Engineering programs in the Philadelphia region are huge on fun! Your child will have an amazing time working on a different hands-on project every week, such as constructing cool machines or bridges using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Watch your child’s creativity soar as he or she constructs these complex creations with a partner and challenges other teams to friendly games and competitions. It’s a novel way for your son or daughter to develop critical 21st century skills while solving problems just like an engineer!
An Education Designed for the 21st Century
Our Engineering courses in the Philadelphia region aren’t just big on excitement: they’re also a great way to equip your child with important STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts. Through three-dimensional learning, collaborative group activities and creative exercises, your child will also develop vital problem solving skills and critical thinking abilities that can make a big impact in the classroom and beyond!▼
Think Like a Real Engineer!
From constructing complex structures to tweaking and rebuilding them in order to test out a better solution, your son or daughter will be solving problems like a real engineer in no time! Our hands-on programs are a fantastic way for your budding inventor to gain a solid grasp of engineering, science and architectural concepts while also igniting his or her imagination and creativity along the way. Parents won’t be missing out on the fun either: we send regular email communication so you can stay informed of your child’s progress. We also preview the following week’s project via email so you and your child can get excited for the next session!
