Founded in 1902, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago’s mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Serving nearly 20,000 youth ages five to 18, Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago works to provide members with the emotional, educational, physical, and cultural resources that allow them to enjoy their childhood and thrive in adulthood. At our Clubs, they find caring mentors, avenues of opportunity and the tools they need to prepare for great futures.

The Engineering Design DIY STEM project provides children with exposure to the practical application of engineering in the world around them. Kids will be introduced to the engineering design process and the iterative design process to help them create experiments that help teach engineering principles of design.
From designing water filters to building stable bridges to hold specified amounts
of weight, participants will formulate hypotheses and collect data about the experiments, then verify and interpret their results.
