Early Engineers is the perfect class for boys and girls, to keep them happy, motivated, and learning! This weekly workshop is based on STEM challenges (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and are hands-on projects that gets kids thinking creatively.
Children love to play and in this class we take their natural curiosity and guide them carefully so that they:

We take the simplest of ideas and expand it, using raw materials of many different types and wide range of equipment. Students work as individuals, pairs and groups to plan and build their own structures. Our youngest children will learn a lot from the older students, and our older students love to mentor and assist!
