Registration for Summer Workshops is Now Open

THE LEAGUE OF YOUNG INVENTORS  is a STEAM program for curious kids offering summer workshops, after school classes, vacation days and birthday parties. We spark kids’ creativity through hands-on exploration, exciting engineering projects and engaging discussions about real world problems.

We empower kids to embrace constraints and invent with the things they find around them. Using bottle caps, rubber bands and cardboard boxes, the everyday is transformed into the extraordinary.

Equipping the next generation to look, think and go further by standing on the shoulders of giants.

    review rating 5  My son started attending the League of Young Inventors program in the fall and fell in love with it immediately. LYI has been an incredible "fill in the blank" for the sometimes, over wrought STEAM curriculums taken on by schools. My son spends his Wednesdays after school going to this incredible hands on workshop where he works alongside his peers to understand foundational inventions of the past. He now knows and looks for examples of the Archimede's screw and the benefits of the inclined plane in his day to day life. It is incredible because kids are natural inventors/tinkerers. This is not just another after school program filled with one off crafts. It is a long tale approach and gets to the heart of the "why" behind the invention of the wheel and it's impact for future inventing. A sidebar - The hours for the program are working parent friendly!

    review rating 5  Without fail, when I arrive to pick up my daughter she is deeply engaged and doesn't want to leave! The League of Young Inventors has given her a safe space to experiment and create, with plenty of time to try out multiple approaches and different materials until she fully understands the problem space and her own solution. The technical problem solving skills she has learned in 3 short months have laid the foundation for systems thinking and collaboration, and as an engineer myself, I am thrilled.

    review rating 5  My 9-year-old son had a great experience in his after-school program at the League of Young Inventors. The kids tackled varied design challenges, and my son, who can be antsy and distractible in school, was always hard at work when I arrived for pickup. I sometimes arrived a bit early and was able to observe the kids working, with guidance, but not direction, from the instructors; kids were encouraged to try things, analyze unsuccessful efforts and try again. I'm looking forward to sending my son to summer camp at the League!

    review rating 5  My 10 year old loves her Inventors class! The class gives her the room to bring her own design and ideas to the inventions while at the same time teaching her the principles of physics and more. She really doesn’t want the class to end.

    review rating 5  My 8 year old son loves to go to the League of Young Inventors! They pick him up in his school and during the class he uses his imagination and crafty skills for over 2 hours! They teach them some scientific principles and they apply their creativity to build their own things. I think it is a really great program
