Engineer’s Clubs

We are all engineers at heart.

Our passion is giving children the tools they will need to succeed!

We focus on STEM skills.

We know what actual STEM programming looks like. We know what children enjoy creating, and what they need to be successful and we have created this series of workshops to fit right in with that skillset.

What do kids do in Engineer's Club?

Kids in "Engineer's Clubs" will be challenged to think, communicate, collaborate, build, test and rebuild. Getting messy, making mistakes, and doing so in a highly social environment is what this club is all about!

Skills Taught/Practiced

Critical thinking. Problem-solving. Creativity. Teamwork and collaboration. Sharing of ideas and resources. Patience. Perseverance!

Why Engineer's Club?

Engineering is everywhere and everything. From city engineers, to website builders, to carpentry, to teachers - we all use engineering to get our jobs done. Kids in Engineer's Clubs will learn to use STEM tools in real-life problem solving situations that invite teamwork, communication, and patience - most of which is NOT taught in schools today!

Prices, Days/Times & Ages

 

Our Engineers Clubs employ a simple pricing structure. Everyone pays $125 per month. That's it!  No hidden lab fees! No registration fee! Nada! Nothing! Zilch! If you register for four months, you can save 10%.

Clubs are organized by grade level.  Your children will choose a "Home Club" to join and become a member of that clubs' community. When your children need to miss a club workshop for any reason, they can make it up during the other day their grade level meets.

Grades K-1- Monday - 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. or Saturday - 9:00 to 10:30 a.m.
Grades 2-3 - Monday - 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. or Saturday - 9:00 to 10:30 a.m.

Sunday options are available as well.  Contact Mark@youngmakerslab.com to arrange a Sunday Club!

What will my children be learning & building in Engineer's Club?

Each month we will embark upon different topics falling under the Engineering Umbrella. 

September is Motion Month. Clubs will be creating all kinds of things that move - from race cars, to Rube Goldberg Machines, to rockets!

October is Coding Month for our clubs.  Younger Engineers (Grades K-3) will learn to use code for the creation of art projects, video game design and more.  Our Engineers in grades 4 to 8 will explore coding for the purpose of Web Building, electronic projects, and complex video game design.

November is 3D Design and Printing Month. Our clubs will be learning and creating in 3D CAD software. Engineers will take home their 3D printed models each week.

December is Engineering Challenge Month. Each week our staff will choose an age appropriate building challenge for the club to solve. The challenges might include electronics, motion, design, and more. 

Our engineering challenges will always be age appropriate in order to challenge yet not frustrate our Engineers in the making!
