Engineering for Kids

Target Applicant:
Engineering For Kids comes from the mind of educator Dori Roberts. With an extensive educational background in Math and Technology education, Roberts taught Engineering at the High school level for 11 years.  During her teaching career, she saw a dire need for Engineering programs for younger students. To fill this void, she started after-school clubs which participated in various Engineering and Science-based competitions. Later on, these clubs grew into the Engineering For Kids Program. Today Engineering For Kids has over 160 locations in 36 countries.
At the Central Jersey branches, by introducting children to fun and engaging STEM programs, instructors prepare students for the challenges of the 21st century. The curriculum encompasses all areas of engineering including hands-on projects, Robotics, Programming, etc.  Engineering for Kids student-centric programs focus on skills like problem-solving, critical thinking, teamwork while maintaining their natural creativity, building grit, enhancing computational thinking and cultivating a making habit. The educators provide perfect opportunities for children from 4-14 years to play, learn and explore via after-school programs, summer camps, workshops, and parties.
