Children as young as 5 years old spent part of spring break working on their engineering skills.

The city’s Recreation Department held a variety of camps, several of which involved engineering and technology, across Stamford schools this week.

They included a Minecraft engineering camp for 5- and 6-year-olds and a Minecraft master camp for ages 7 through 12. Both were held at Newfield Elementary School and were run by Play-Well TEKnologies, which uses LEGO to teach engineering to children.
