Our Engineering programs in the Portland region are designed for big time fun! Each and every week, your child will dive into a cool new project, such as designing, building and testing a machine or bridge using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Your child will get those creative juices flowing as he or she teams up with a buddy to build these awesome structures and challenges other teams to friendly games and competitions. It’s an innovative way for your child to think and problem-solve just like an engineer while developing crucial 21st century skills along the way!
