Camps

About Us

Engineering for Kids Camps inspire children to build on their natural curiosity through fun and challenging, hands-on activities. Our program encourages imagination, innovation and collaboration as well as the promotion of individual problem solving skills. Campers are introduced to the concepts of engineering and the Engineering Design Process, applying these concepts in a real world setting as they ask, brainstorm, design, build, test and improve their creations multiple times.


When school is out join us at the Cradle of Aviation Museum for hands on fun and exciting STEM excursions!!
