Early Engineers Classes & Camps

Early Engineers Classes & Camps

Brick by brick, we're building a better future!

We offer Early Engineers because too many children shy away from math and science.
We want our kids, and yours, to be exposed to topics like velocity, bioluminescence, Newton’s Laws, levers & fulcrum, centripetal & centrifugal forces, reflection & refraction of light, and many more, in a fun-filled, interactive, kid-friendly, project-based learning environment. That way, when they go off to Junior High and High School, they will be more comfortable and willing to raise their hand when these topics come up. Familiarity now, will lead to the confidence to engage later. And we do this using their favorite building materials like Lego Bricks and K’nex blocks. As you can imagine, Early Engineers has been our flagship afterschool program for over 14 years. Kids absolutely love to show off their creations to their friends in class.

Our Early Engineers is available in both in-person and online formats
In our online version of early engineers, we meet online once a week for an hour with live instructors who will coach you along with step-by-step narration and explanation of various engineering terms and project builds. If you haven’t already done so, please purchase an Early Engineers Starter Kit to get supplies for all monthly sessions until May 30, 2022. We have tailored our curriculum so that all our projects for the entire school year would be covered by this one single packet. (See “How it works” for more info)

Six things you may not know about Early Engineers:


We are a local small business, proudly owned and operated by a Sacramento mom of three. When you call us, you will speak to a real, attentive, and helpful person - no robots!


All of our instructors are fingerprinted and cleared through the CA Department of Justice. A combination of Lego enthusiasts and future teachers, all of our instructors go through a comprehensive training program prior to teaching.


Your child can attend class after class, or session after session without any repeats. In fact, your child can attend K - 5th grade without repeating a single project!


Your child's safety is of the utmost importance. That's why we go the extra mile to call a guardian's cell phone to verify every class absence, to ensure they are exactly where they need to be!


We know every proud parent or grandparent can't always come for pickup to see your child's latest masterpiece. That's why our instructors take photos in every class and send you a link to view photos in an online gallery!


Our goal is to get more kids interested in science and math, through confidence-building classes. Setting your child up for future success is what drives us and why we get up in the morning!

Frequently Asked Questions

...or give us a call at 916-419-7644!

Do you combine age groups?
We prefer to separate the grades K-2 and 3-6 into two classes so that all of the students are challenged at the appropriate level. Depending on enrollment we may have one class with all of the students- because our student to teacher ratio is low; we are able to guarantee that our younger and beginner students get extra attention and our older and advanced students are given additional challenges.

Does my child need to bring anything?
No, Early Engineers provides all materials.

What kind of projects will my child do?
Our kids need the real world skills and experience that can only be gained through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) based learning programs. Early Engineers is a creative building program that uses Legos and K'Nex to help students gain STEM knowledge through a variety of weekly projects.
