New Program gives kids a glimpse at engineering
By: Allison Hurtado
Think a preschooler can’t understand engineering? One new company in Ahwatukee Foothills is out to prove they can.
Engineering for Kids is an after-school program for ages 4 to 14 that teaches engineering skills to kids through hands-on experiences with robots; airplanes and rockets; solids, liquids and solutions; plants; toys; roller coasters; LEGOS; and even video games, in hopes that they might begin thinking more critically and maybe some day even consider engineering as a career.
It may seem like a stretch to imagine young kids doing the same things aerospace and chemical engineers do, but Engineering for Kids founder and CEO Dori Roberts said it came naturally for her own young kids and that’s why she felt inspired to share it.
