What is Engineering?

Wherever there is a problem to be solved, an engineer is there to find a solution.

Engineering uses math and science to solve problems and design many types of devices and structures, from the largest skyscrapers to the smallest nanoparticles. However, unlike scientists, who are primarily concerned with answering questions about how things work, engineers seek to solve specific problems as they arise.

Benefits of Engineering for Kids

Teaches Innovation

Engineering teaches kids to think out of the box. They quickly learn that when they do, great things can happen.

Prepares for the Future

There is no shortage of engineering jobs. If kids can learn now, they can set themselves up for a bright future.

Builds Confidence

Kids need to believe in their projects for them to succeed. This takes confidence. Even for kids who may not have tons of confidence when they start, they quickly learn that if they believe in themselves and their work, others will too.

Instills Collaboration

Many times, kids can learn from others and use their insight to make their projects better. Learning how to collaborate is a skill they can use their entire lives.
