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. The variety of programming is extraordinary!

Director & Owner, Deb Vallez

Deb Vallez is a 20 year Veteran of the US Navy, a former elementary school teacher and civilian government servant of the US Armed Forces. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and a Master of Arts degree in Computer Resource Information Systems Management. While on active duty, earned sub-specialties in Education & Training and Computer Resource Information Systems Management.

Ms. Vallez is passionate about providing our children the skills and educational foundation to lead productive lives with lucrative careers. Engineering For Kids provides a fun, hands-on learning environment that exposes children to a broadened world of opportunities. With such a large deficit of Engineers and Scientists graduating from colleges and continuous development in technology, there will always be a surplus of jobs in these fields. We are preparing students to meet these demands and be our future engineers!

Ms. Vallez is excited to introduce engineering programs to Hampton Roads.
