Design is a tool for creating beautiful experiences that educate, provoke and accelerate innovation.

 

Engineering brings together an understanding of how the world works. A child begins developing engineering skills the first time he or she stacks blocks. 

Innovation is the discovery of new solutions that add value as a result of an idea, experiment, or methodology.

of play than a year of conversation.” Plato

 

Young adult, youth and children's, after school and summer labs have 3 objectives:

  • To introduce design and engineering concepts to children at an age when dreams motivate action.

  • To explore form, function and scale through exciting project based learning and testing with LEGO®.

  • To plant a seed of possibility in the mind of a child that could influence their educational path and career ambitions.
