It’s almost Valentine’s Day and my kids are already plotting how to deliver those special messages to the ones they love!

So, we made a Valentine’s Day candy delivery STEM challenge using frogs - origami frogs that is!

Help, My Elf is Stuck on a Shelf!

Help, My Elf is Stuck on a Shelf!

With days until Christmas, kids can be bundles of restless energy! We can help you channel all that craziness with a fun Christmas themed engineering challenge that will keep your child or students entertained while learning! 

Many families across the country participate in the fun tradition of the Elf on a Shelf. The elf is a magical helper that manages his naughty and nice lists by reporting back to the North Pole each night. Parents have fun placing the elf in all sorts of crazy positions each night, and kids wake up each morning looking for the elf.
