For children from 6 to 9 years old
Young Engineers is designed for early primary school pupils. Here, these young learners have the ability to be transformed into small scientists. By watching the world around them, children learn to wonder about what’s going on in nature, how something works or what a device does. Through collaboration, these small engineers make use of their skills by building simple models and experimentally learning about the usefulness of the mechanisms they encounter in their environment.
With original constructions, young engineers find applications of simple machines (gears, pulleys, levers) seen in everyday life and look for solutions to specific problems, thinking as true engineers.
Experiential learning offers in an entertaining and playful way, knowledge that is easily perceived and encourages children to comprehend and love science and explore their inclinations to them.
Purpose of the program
The purpose of the program is for children to get acquainted with basic building techniques, simple mechanisms and motion, all of which are not taught in public education. We also aim to develop skills in problem solving and team work.
