Matt, a registered Professional Engineer and LEED Accredited Professional in Charleston, understands the importance of early exposure to STEM education and the impact it can have on our children’s future. It just seemed natural when they had the idea to combine his enthusiasm for engineering and their love of children to form , a Lego® Learning Center.

provides project-based programs to teach the principles and methods of engineering, architecture, math and science using Lego® Bricks. It takes learning out of the pages of the textbook and into an imaginative, 3-dimensional, hands-on fun learning experience! The kids build from full-color proprietary model plans which introduce developmentally appropriate concepts ranging from counting, patterning, and recognizing colors and shapes at the preschool level to working with custom made simple machine Lego® kits, creating machines working with gears and technic pieces as well as programing robots at the elementary and middle school levels. At we strive to develop effective problem solving skills and provide an opportunity for creative expression that encourages teamwork while building self-confidence. Our programs provide an extraordinary outlet for children to build unique models, learn new team building skills and problem solving strategies, and have a ton of fun building with Lego® bricks.
