Engineering for Kids
Scientific Children Corporation is a Portland based education company and it runs a master franchise of Engineering For Kids® (EFK) in the Portland Metro area. The EFK headquarter is in Virginia which has opened more than 150 locations in over 35 different countries. We offer STEM focused programs to children of K-8 in the Portland Metro area which include enrichment and after school classes, homeschool enrichment programs, camps, STEM workshops and events. Since the company’s establishment in 2012, we have partnered with over 100 local schools and education organizations. Our mission is to get the next generation excited and inspired by engineering by building on their innate desire for answers and exploring engineering concepts in a fun, hands-on way. Though a for-profit company, each year we team up with our partner schools to offer scholarships, discounted certificates for our programs so more children will have access to STEM programs and discover their interest and potential for those subjects.
