"Engineering for Kids is wonderful. Our granddaughter attended one of the workshops on Straw Rockets. She is 4 ½ and she loved it! She is very quiet, but after the class, she came home and wanted to make straw rockets all weekend. She talked nonstop about the teachers and how far her rockets flew. This was a great experience for her! We recommend these classes for all kids and it is fun for the parents (or grandparents) to watch also." - Robert L.
