Summer is going to be here before we know it! Here in Dane County, we are fortunate to have tons of fantastic opportunities for our kids year round and the summer is no exception. It’s always so wonderful to learn about new opportunities, fun activities and educational programs that enrich the lives of our children! Engineering For Kid of Dane County does just that (and they have SO many different programs – at various locations – to offer!). They offer a wide array of programs for children ages 4 to 14 introducing them to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through a variety of workshops all aimed at developing problem solving skills. Programs include after school programs, evening classes, in-school field trips, workshops, birthday parties, home-school programs, scouts workshops, and pre-school programs.
And NEW THIS YEAR they are partnering with Rockin’ Jump Trampoline Park to offer full day camps for Juniors (K-2nd grade) & Apprentice (3rd – 7th grade) and it is now open for registration! The kids have the opportunity to learn in an extra fun and active setting – they can burn some of their energy in between hands on STEM learning!
