Celebrating Over 20 Years of Playing Well

20 years ago, our founder, Tim Bowen, had an idea to introduce kids to the world of engineering through building and playing with LEGO®, when the concept of S.T.E.M. had not even been popularized yet.

Since then, Play-Well has been lucky enough to teach over 800,000 kids. Here is the story of how a crazy idea became an engineering program for kids that now reaches over 100,000 kids a year all over the United States.

What's it like working with Play-Well?

Do you love kids and love LEGO®? Are you a tinkerer? Do you enjoy taking things apart and then putting them back together? Would you like to use a ridiculous amount of LEGO® materials to teach kids how the world works? If so, then this may be your dream job! 

The successful Play-Well Engineering Instructor has...
*Passion for kids and ability to quickly develop good rapport with children while maintaining discipline, and directing the design and building experience.
*Comfort with "controlled chaos."
*Understanding of basic scientific and engineering principles; love of problem solving - makers and tinkerers encouraged to apply!
*An inquisitive, fun-loving personality. We like people who are curious about how things work and are willing to "nerd out" with kids.
