Engineering For Kids of Calgary

Engineering For Kids Alberta and the importance of STEM and robotics literacy today!

As technology is advancing and the world is rapidly evolving, we need to ensure that our kids are well prepared for the future and ready to tackle new challenges with confidence. We establish this through critical thinking, problem solving skills and most importantly STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and robotics literacy.

At Engineering For Kids, our goal is to provide our youth with the premier learning experience aimed at expanding their horizons into the rewarding world of science, technology, engineering, and math.

We assist and work with educators and teachers to help students develop a wide range of skills necessary to succeed in the 21st Century.

Over the past 24 months we have taught over 2,000 kids in Pre-school, Elementary and Junior High School. The excitement and interest to continue STEM and robotics education is amazing.

Using our education curriculum and strategies, anyone can learn programming, robotics, coding, and engineering. Our material appeals to all students; Girls and Boys have fun as well as take home their builds and projects to share with family and friends.

ALL our students need to be gaining stronger STEM skills and robotics literacy.
If you're interested in providing your students with an engaging education in STEM, programming, coding, or robotics, I would be happy to talk to you.

Let’s work together to inspire the next generation of innovators and engineers!

About Our Founder & Our Values

How Engineering For Kids Is Changing the World

When looking to register her six and eight-year-old children for engineering programs, Dori Roberts noticed that there were very few options available. Soon, Engineering For Kids was born. Roberts opened her first location in 2009 and, in 2011, she started franchising her company. Over this short time, Engineering For Kids has opened more than 150 locations in over 35 different countries!

Before It All Began

With 11 years of experience teaching engineering at a high school level, Dori Roberts has an extensive background in technology and math education. As a teacher and a mother, she was able to recognize how much engineering, science, and math programs were needed. During this time, she began an after-school club that took part in multiple science-based and engineering-based competitions.

The program attained 180 students and won numerous state championships, giving Roberts the idea to create similar programs adapted for a broader age demographic. She brought the first Engineering For Kids programs to a local elementary school, where they were a hit. She received such a positive response that she decided to leave teaching to devote all of her time developing Engineering For Kids.

The Program’s Success Today

Since its inception, this program has changed the lives of more than 350,000 students. Our franchisees share Roberts’ passion for Engineering For Kids and we all understand the need for science, technology, engineering, and math enrichment that’s engaging and fun.

At Engineering For Kids, the ultimate goal has always been to help kids have fun in an educational way. By customizing activities that tack onto what they’re already learning in their school curriculum, their knowledge of the subject matter solidifies, all while they build a variety of important social skills.

Our program is the best way for children to befriend others that share similar passions. Call (587) 802-3576 to learn more about us and our values!
