EXPLORE! BUILD! CREATE! Noggin Builders weekly classes for ages 2-14 years are filled with fun, hands-on STEM activities!

Noggin Builders projects use STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) activities as a natural way to explore. The scientific method and engineering design process encourage patterns like asking questions, brainstorming, planning, building, testing and improving.

Exploring with these skills will help your child grow as a creative problem solver! At Noggin Builders, your child will build more than a science project - he or she builds the life-long skills of creative problem solving, perseverance, communication and collaboration.
