Engineering is Not Just for Adults

Social Geek Radio hosts Deb Evans, Founder Deb Evans Consulting, LLC and Jack Monson, Director Digital Strategy at Qiigo is joined by Dori Roberts, Founder of Engineering for Kids franchise system.

Dori Roberts began her career as a high school Engineering and Technology teacher and in 2009 she created Engineering For Kids after seeing an absence of engineering education opportunities for her two young children. Since 2009 Dori has grown Engineering For Kids into a multi-national franchise consisting of over 150 locations worldwide. With her goal of “for every child, engineering education.” She created the Engineering For Kids Foundation in 2014 to allow students of all economic and social upbringing to experience engineering education first hand.

During Dori’s teaching career, she saw a dire need for math, science and engineering programs. To fill this void, she started an afterschool club that participated in various engineering and science-based competitions. She saw a great business opportunity, left her teaching profession and the rest is franchise history.
