hear what parents have to say
At Junior Engineers we aspire to deliver imaginative, innovative and engaging programs that motivate and empower our kids. But don’t just take our word for it! See what our parents, teachers & kids have to say...
As for my experience with the Junior Engineer staff, I have been most impressed. As the robotics coordinator at St Peters Lutheran College I felt that we needed some more coding options for our students; younger students in particular. Junior Engineers seemed to have the curriculum and small-group focus that I wanted for our students. From their first interactions with me I was reassured by Junior Engineer staff confidence and ability to tailor their programs to our needs.

I must just say, as a mum of a child with autism, I am so grateful that you offer this program. James lives for technology and to be able to interact with it and be taught about it in this way is wonderful from a mum’s perspective.

My son has been participating in Junior Engineers’ programs for 5 terms and I wanted to thank you for your fantastic program. Junior Engineers is one of my son’s favourite activities and he always looks forward to the next lesson. In a fun way, he has gained a solid understanding of coding and he is constantly being inspired by the program. A big thank you and see you next term.
