Taking TIME to Tinker Innovate Make and Explore

 Einstein By Design operates after school enrichment classes, seasonal camps, workshops, and professional development programs at schools, arts centers, community centers and maker spaces. Our programs emphasize Design Thinking and Innovation Literacy development. We use core elements of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math in our curriculum to create innovative, technology-based learning experiences. Our team comprised of educators, scientists, engineers, creative technologists, computer programmers and makers is passionate about teaching children technology and design thinking concepts through innovative hands-on activities.

 

Keith Brown of the Evanston Arts Center shares his thoughts on the center's collaboration with Einstein By Design.

Einstein By Design has been great for the Evanston Arts Center. Parents and kids alike love their programs, and they’ve been great collaborators in helping us bring innovative programs to youth in our area. We’re looking forward to expanding our partnership with them.

We combine technology with real world craft making. Kids become proficient in the latest software and technology tools, while also honing their skills in making and design. These two skill sets combine to help kids become life-long tinkerers and innovators.

Not every kid who signs up for our programs has extensive knowledge in or material. We work hard to make sure everyone can fit into our programs-beginners and advanced level learners. We use differentiated instructional methods and provide lots of room for challenge and growth. Learning should be fun, and that what it is here at EBD. Kids are exposed to a plethora of awesome hands on experiences through which they can learn by doing.
