If your son or daughter has an interest in designing structures and exploring how machines work, our Engineering programs in Stanwood could be a great way to help inspire your child’s imagination! Our sessions focus on fun and friendship, helping kids fire up their creativity as they explore important engineering concepts. Your child will pair up with a buddy to work on exciting new projects each week, such as making a LEGO® machine or constructing one of the world’s seven bridge types out of K’NEX® pieces. It’s an awesome way for your child to learn important 21st century skills that can make a big impact in the classroom and beyond!
