Bricks Challenge

young engineers conveyerThe Bricks Challenge program introduces primary school children to the basic principles of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). By integrating basic arithmetic learned in school with an intuitive active learning process, children grasp a better understanding of the fundamentals of physics and engineering.

Recommended age: Children in years 1 – 5
Average lesson duration: 75 minutes

Program Subjects

  • Basic and complex mathematics: Instructors teach basic maths from addition and subtraction to exponents.
  • Famous scientific and philosophical figures: Archimedes, Sir Isaac Newton, Einstein, and more.
  • Powers and principles in physics: Centrifugal and centripetal forces, the power of inertia, potential energy, kinetic energy, action and reaction law, buoyancy, torques, fulcrum, load division, angular momentum, and more.

Valuable Skills Gained

  • Develops fine motor skills
  • Encourages creative thinking
  • Develops the ability of analyzing engineering process
  • Strengthens social aptitude and develops communication and teamwork ability
  • Expands horizons and general knowledge in physics and various natural phenomena
Galileo Technic

Young Engineers LEGO KitThe Galileo Technic program investigates mechanical systems from a real engineer’s point of view. The program focuses on finding solutions using teamwork in order to build complex machines. Children will explore the mechanical, mathematical and physical aspects of machinery and the logical process that goes into building them.

Recommended age: Children in years 4 – 6
Average lesson duration: 75 minutes

Robo Bricks

The Robo Bricks enrichment program teaches logical thinking and coding using LEGO®.

During each lesson, students employ mechanical engineering skills to build a robot and software engineering skills to code the robot to perform the desired tasks.

Students will be working in pairs to solve these complex projects.

Recommended age: Children in years 4 – 7
Average lesson duration: 75 minutes

Program Subjects

  • Algorithm planning: Understanding what an algorithm is and how to write one.
  • Pseudocode: Understanding what pseudocode is and how to write one.
  • Flow chart: The understanding of flow chart in programming.
  • WeDo programming: Learning the WeDo programming language.
  • Input and Output: The purpose of input and output, and understanding when one is required.
  • Loops: The use of loops to achieve similar processes multiple times.
  • Multithreading: Syncyronous and asynchronous code.
  • Sensor applications: The use and programming of sensors to achieve tasks.

Valuable Skills Gained

  • Algorithmic and procedual thinking
  • Develops the ability to devise logical processes
  • Familiarisation with technology
  • Improve information system and media literacy
  • Strengthens social aptitude and develops communication and teamwork ability
  • Expands horizons and general knowledge in mechanical engineering and technology skills
Statistical Overview

After extensive testing, it has been statistically proven that children participating in e² Young Engineers enrichment programs achieve high grades within all scientific subjects taught at school.

It has also been proven that elementary school students who join Young Engineers community obtain the mathematical knowledge required to succeed when tackling the more complex scientific curricula taught at middle and high schools.
