Your child sits slumped over on the
couch, eyes glued to her iPhone, intent on catching the latest Pokemon or
Snapchatting with her friends. You try to ask her if she wants to go outside,
but she just shakes her head.
When you became a parent, you promised yourself

teach them how to cook, break out the old chemistry set, or go stargazing with
them at night.
You want them to experience the thrill of scientific discovery
and all that technology can do!

Great article on STEM. We just opened a new company in Victoria BC called Engineering For Kids. We give kids the chance to focus on many aspects of STEM. We offer Aerospace, Civil, Mechanical, Robotics, and more options for the children to get involved and see what STEM is all about. We cannot wait to offer it up and down Vancouver Island.
