Engineering For Kids: Inspiring the Next Generation of Engineers from Engineering For Kids on Vimeo.
We put the excitement in S.T.E.M. education by offering hands-on-learning for children ages 4 to 14 through FUN activities from designing and constructing rockets, hot air balloons, and roller coasters to robotics, video game designing and creating fun objects using LEGO® bricks.
