At Home Engineering Kits

Give a hands-on experience to the young engineers in your life. Our educators have developed a series of At Home Engineering projects designed to engage kids and get them excited about STEM. Each kit comes with all the special materials needed to make a project and online video instructions.

When you purchase our At Home Engineering kits, you’re not only providing valuable learning for your child, you’re supporting a local nonprofit organization.

How It Works:

  • Order your At-Home engineering kit through the link below.
  • Once your order is complete, you will receive an email letting you know that your order is ready (usually a few business days).
  • Stop in any time during open hours to pick up your order. If you need your order sooner, or need to arrange pickup on a different day, give us a call at 952-888-4262. We’ll do our best to accommodate you.
  • Once you pick up your kit, you will receive a link to the At-Home Engineering tutorial video that will guide kids through the project with step-by-step instructions.
  • Our educators are available for virtual office hours if your child needs assistance or wants some ideas to expand their project.
