Next Gen Engineers Club for 6th and 7th Graders

Does your child love to design, create, and build? Do you want your 6th or 7th grader to meet mentors in exciting careers?

Next Gen Engineers is a 6-week program that meets on Saturday afternoons at The Works Museum. Each Saturday session will introduce 6th and 7th graders to the real world of engineering through fun activities.

Program participants will:

  • Develop skills such as collaboration, persistence, and problem solving.

  • Meet and work with other 6th and 7th graders with similar interests.
