Why Parents & Kids Love Our Engineering For Kids Camps

Our winter, spring, and summer camps are specially designed to supplement your child’s existing curriculum. It’s our goal to build upon what your child already knows in order to solidify his or her knowledge in a fun and engaging environment.

Most of our camps last one week with a variety of different sessions that focus on different fields. Many parents find this beneficial because their children can enjoy all of the fun and educational workshops offered in multiple sessions without experiencing repeat activities.
