Big Builders

Knex program

This fun and unique program is for young kids in preschool, daycare 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 buoyancy

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 

young engineers conveyerThe 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

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.

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.

Robotics

Robotics provides a real-life simulation of the complex engineering challenges that exists in the industry. R&SE enrichment program encourages the students to use their critical thinking skills using teamwork, as the students build robots together and create something amazing

 Ages 12-15

Average lesson duration: 90 minutes

Robo Bricks

 Ages 9-12

Average lesson duration: 60/ 90 minutes

Robo Bricks enrichment program teaches software engineering, technology, entrepreneurship and math (STEM). During each lesson, students build a robot that moves using coding.

Building robots allows the students to develop the ability to create computer algorithms and learn how to implement codes. Most computer programming and software engineering are in English. We teach our students to use the correct English terms, aiding them to develop their technical language for the field.

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.
