Enter for Engineering: Kids Winter Learning Challenge

From a microchip to the Willis Tower, engineers make a lot of things you use every day. What can you engineer? Think big (or small). Make a plan, build it, test it out and see what you can do to improve it!

We're challenging kids to be an engineer over winter break with Chicago Public Library's Winter Learning Challenge from December 18 to January 8.

To complete the challenge:

  • Read (books, magazines or websites) for 20 minutes a day for at least five days.
  • Complete an activity and share what you discover and create.

Keep track of your progress on the Winter Learning Challenge log (Kids Winter Learning Challenge Log 2017 Spanish). Return your completed log to any CPL location by January 16 to receive a prize.
