Resources for Families

Welcome to the Head Start on Engineering project! Practicing engineering design skills and problem-solving strategies is a powerful way to support young children’s learning and to prepare them to be successful problem solvers in school and life. It also a great way to spend time together as a whole family!

Engage with engineering design by exploring and downloading these free, bilingual (Spanish/English) activity ideas and resources designed for preschool-age children (3 to 5 years) and their families.


Engineering can help families by teaching them to problem solve in creative ways. It gives them the power to create.”
