We are the leader in STEM programs in the state. We operate out of the only K-12 Fab Lab in the U.S.. We have over twenty nine years of experience teaching children engineering and we offer both innovative summer and school year programs. This is a LAB ONLY class that meets for 45 hours over the course of four months.
Unlike any other STEM Enrichment program, Young Engineers Of Today is anything but traditional. Our lessons are especially designed to engage students to work both independently and cooperatively, making almost anything. Labs are held in a Fablab ( Fabrication Lab ) on a nearby school campus every other week for two hours OR once a month for students from out of town.
Young Engineers is designed and run by recognized STEM educators with over twenty nine years of experience teaching engineering and programming. Our innovative camps and classes are the result of our love of learning and our passion for improving how we teach for the future. We want our kids to become technology creators, not just consumers. We use the latest advanced equipment, electronics and software and use them to create an immersive educational experience — no straws or toothpicks here! We use everything from 3D Printers and EV3 LEGO Robotics to Raspberry Pi Microcomputers and cyborg cockroaches. Our hands on camps are more than theoretical or computer based – your child will be experimenting, tinkering and creating with their hands and by the end of the week will have something they made to bring home.
