​Our Daddy-Daughter & Mother-Son Date Night was a unique event that engaged parents and their children in hands-on activities geared towards STEM and Art inspired concepts.  The couples engaged in meaningful conversations about how to problem solve & create their individual artistic pieces.  The event was a huge success and gave more than 30 couples an evening to create, dance, eat and engage in hands-on activities.

Popsicle Stick Make-and Take

SOLD OUT in 3 Days

Our Popsicle Stick Make-and-Take was a SUCCESS!!!!  The young engineers, as well as their parents, enjoyed using their creativity to engineer their own custom picture frame, airplane, skateboard, treasure box, tech stand or bird feeder!  Some of the engineers finished early, so they completed TWO projects!  It was a GREAT evening!  Check out the video of our engaging event below!!  

​TBHE strives to provide the Chicagoland community with hands-on events that cater to the needs of the students.  Our events provide a safe and inviting atmosphere for families to work together to learn and create.    

​​​Our Urban Engineering Night was designed to give children and their parents an opportunity to become Engineers, by engaging in hands-on projects that require them to implement Science, Technology, Engineering and Math skills using items that they may already have at home. Parents are encouraged to join their children in the creation of the projects, as well as the competitions, to encourage dialogue and cooperative problem-solving.
