Stafford entrepreneur interviewed on Fox Business

Dori Roberts, founder and CEO of Engineering for Kids, was interviewed about her Stafford County-based business recently on Fox Business.

Roberts, who used to teach technology engineering at Colonial Forge High School, started her company in 2008 as a summer camp for 6- to 12-year-olds interested in learning how to build bridges and robots in a fun, hands-on way.

Today,  Engineering for Kids offers a variety of after-school, holiday and summer classes, as well as birthday parties. The local office is in Aquia Park shopping center in Stafford, but there are also 75 franchises around the world.
