Young Engineers Windhoek Workshops

e² Young Engineers has developed many special LEGO® bricks workshops designed to enhance a number of one-off occasions, including birthday parties, summer camps, take your child to work days, adults and senior citizen, special needs as well as gifted children workshops.

Young Engineers – Windhoek, Namibia Programs

Big Builders

This fun and unique program is for young kids in preschool, day care and kindergarten (ages 4-6). The Big Builders program incorporates tactile, motor, and spatial skills while introducing science and engineering principles using K’nex® building blocks. These programs are conducted in small groups to ensure each Big Builder obtains the intended knowledge and experience.

Ages: 4-6 (Pre-school)

Average Lesson Duration: 45 minutes

Program Subjects Include

Physics Principles: Basic principles such as balance and flexibility
Animal Kingdom: Various animals – domestic and wild
Biology: Natural pest control, pollination and symbiosis
The Universe: Space, Earth and the Solar System
Geometry: Characteristics of basic geometric shapes
Transportation and Traffic Safety: Understanding different types of vehicles including motorcycles, trucks, cars and boats

Bricks Challenge

The Bricks Challenge program introduces elementary school children (ages 6-12) 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 concepts.

Ages: 6-12 (1st – 5th grade)

Average lesson duration: 75 minutes

Program Subjects Include

Basic and complex mathematics: Instructors teach basic math, 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/reaction law, buoyancy, torque, fulcrum, load division, angular momentum, and more.

Galileo Technic

The 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.

Ages 10-14

Average lesson duration: 75 minutes

Program Subjects Include

•     Basic and complex mathematics: instructors teach basic math, from addition and subtraction to exponents.
•     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. Archimedes, Sir Isaac Newton, Einstein, and more.
