Engineering For Kids

 

Engineering For Kids brings science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), to kids ages 4 to 14 in a fun and challenging way through classes, camps, clubs, and parties.

We are proud to inspire children to build on their natural curiosity by teaching engineering concepts through hands-on learning. Engineering is, after all, one of the fastest growing industries in the world!

Thanks to a generous STEM grant awarded by the General Motors Foundation, we are able to offer the same great Engineering For Kids programs at a lower fee of only $35!
