Engineering For Kids began when Dori Roberts, founder and CEO, noticed that there was a lack of engineering programs in the area to enroll her then 6 and 8 year old children. Dori opened her first location in 2009 and began franchising her business in 2011. Since then, Engineering For Kids has opened 145 locations in 21 countries.
Engineering For Kids continues to grow rapidly, with plans to add 30 new franchise locations in 2016. Since our inception has had over 150,000 students take a program. Our franchisees share Roberts’ passion for the program, understanding the need for fun and engaging STEM enrichment.
