Do you love tinkering as much as your tots do? Sign the whole family up for an exciting pilot program in engineering through the Boston Museum of Science!

If you’re looking to foster a love of STEM in your kids, then the program hosted by Engineering in Elementary (EiE) at Boston Museum of Science could be the perfect fit. The museum is currently on the hunt for kids and their families across the country to participate in the new Engineering At Home program.

EiE, which develops STEM-based classroom curriculum for elementary schools, is inviting families to apply to test a new learning program to be utilized at home. The Engineering At Home activity guides will be written for parents and requires little or no prior experience with engineering. In addition, the materials needed will be inexpensive and easy to source. Each activity will guide families through the Engineering Design Process to design a technology that solves a problem.

EiE is looking for families with kids ages four to 11 to test one of the activities and provide feedback. If you are interested in applying, all you have to do is complete a very short questionnaire about your family here and you’ll be notified by email if you’ve been chosen.
