Engineering education franchise company landing in East Valley
By: Angela Gonzales
Engineering for Kids — a Virginia education franchising company — has expanded into the Phoenix area.
The Fredericksburg, Va.-based company offers science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM programs to children ages four through 14 via classes, camps, clubs and parties.
Ron Hoagland, the program director for East Valley Engineering for Kids, said his franchise territory covers several parts of the East Valley, including Ahwatukee, Tempe, Chandler, Scottsdale and Paradise Valley.
“Kids in general are naturally curious how things work,” Hoagland said. “A lot of times they don’t really understand that math and science are a part of that.”
