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.

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.
