Urban Workshops Brings Back Old School Shop Classes for Kids & Teens

Urban Workshop is the only hands-on shop class that gets kids and teens (ages 10-16) to put down their phones, solve difficult problems using their hands, experience real tools and solutions, and learn new skills that last a lifetime.

These are no ordinary STEM classes, more like old school shop classes that combine new technology and traditional skills. Students will have fun, get dirty, use loud and obnoxious tools and make a lot of sawdust, metal chips, and wire scraps along the way!

Register now for the Fall semester starting September 13th! The semester is 12 weeks long with the opportunity to continue leveling up in the Spring. Charter school funds accepted.
