What is Engineering? Simply put, it is designing and building a structure or machine.

Engaging children in engineering projects is a great hands-on way to encourage learning through trial-and-error, logical thinking, creativity, and the application of the scientific method. Engineering with recycled materials can not only be cost effective, and great for the environment, you can also make unique projects through your own imagination and creativity, from catapults to skyscrapers and everything in between.
