Bulger's Beat: Engineering for Kids comes to Nashville

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

You're never too young to learn about computers and how they work. That's the idea behind a new Nashville program called Engineering for Kids.

Children ages 7 to 11 spend time at the camp fully engaged in a computer screens, but they're not playing a game. They're creating one.

Trey Davis spent part of his summer vacation learning computer programming at Engineering for Kids. He discovered the science of acceleration and speed.

"It gets easier once you know what you're doing," Davis said. "These two robots look the same, but I have programmed them differently."

Neeti Agarwal runs the private program and finds a way to make words like "fulcrum" fun.

"They're learning the concepts they would learn in school at a later age, they're learning at an early age," Agarwal said.

Engineering for Kids is a national idea now with franchises all across the country, including Nashville.

If your child is interest in math or science, you can sign him or her up for an after-school program.
