Engineering For Kids brings science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), to kids ages 4 to 14 in a fun and challenging way through classes, camps, clubs, and parties. We are proud to inspire children to build on their natural curiosity by teaching engineering concepts through hands-on learning. Engineering is, after all, one of the fastest growing industries in the world! In order to impact as many youth as possible, Engineering for Kids began franchising as a way to spread the program across the country. Engineering for Kids presents a low-barrier opportunity with room to grow, as the brand plans to add between 50-60 new locations in 2015. Our franchisees share a passion for the program, understanding the need for STEM education.
