Our EDGE Programs Include:
- Robotics & Science: Your child can build robots, friendships and confidence with our cutting-edge robotics program. In fact, creating, programming and animating LEGO® robots is the perfect challenge for budding engineers.
- Coding: Expect plenty of high-fives and exciting anecdotes when you register your child for our coding program, which comes complete with cool, interactive projects like building video games, developing mini-stories and creating computer animations.
- Engineering: Race cars and bridges don’t build themselves. They need dreamers. Problem solvers. Tinkerers ... In other words, engineers! Your child will take on fun, hands-on challenges, such as building simple machines or designing amazing bridges.
- Math Edge: Math forms an important part of every STEM subject, so we offer a program that makes math more engaging, interactive and exciting (yes, really!) than ever before. Our brain-boosting activities — including puzzles, brainteasers and other fun proficiency challenges — help kids hone problem-solving skills they can use in school and beyond.
