Club Description

Our Engineers to the Rescue kids club is an immersive experience, where children get to step into the virtual shoes of real-world rescue engineers and take on their daily challenges. Throughout the 5-week club, each Designer Mind will carry out a series of open-ended creative challenges based on a rescue mission. From airdropping essential supplies into a disaster zone to learning how to earthquake-proof a building, each Designer Mind will get to know the theories and principles of engineering, in a fun and interactive hands-on learning environment.
