How high can you stack? How fast can you build? Take our Red Cup Challenge!

Join us for our Red Cup Challenge! Put your engineering and creativity skills to the test! Not only will you stack red cups, but we will create building challenges to stretch your skills and encourage teamwork.  This hands-on program will provide children with the opportunity to use their critical thinking and problem-solving skills to achieve a result. 

This program is designed for children ages 6-10 years old, but everyone is welcome to attend. Due to space limitations, there will be an attendance limit. All supplies provided.
