Young Engineers Milton-Burlington Programs

Junior Bricks Challenge 

This fun and unique program is for young kids in preschool, daycare and kindergarten (ages 4-6). The Junior Bricks Challenge program incorporates tactile, motor, and spatial skills while introducing science and engineering principles using LEGO® building blocks.

Ages: 4-6 (Pre-school)

Average Lesson Duration: 45 minutes

Program Subjects Include

Physics Principles: Basic principles such as balance

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 6-10) 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: 6-10 

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.

 

Build Up

young engineers lego challengeBuild Up is a program for children with learning disabilities and special needs.

Ages: 6-12 

Average lesson duration: 60 minutes

Program Subjects Include 

The Build Up program will expose children to the concept of creative leisure, placing an emphasis on planning and execution skills, flexibility and social interaction with their peers. The children will learn how to independently build models in stages and increasing levels of difficulty. They will know the models’ functional uses and explain their usage with appropriate building additions. In addition, the children will play with their friends and games will combine social rules such as playing in turn, cooperating in a group toward achieving a joint product, structure game and instructions and rules, imaginary and free play.

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.

RoboBricks

Using LEGO® parts and LEGO® WeDo graphic programming to build robots, Robo Bricks enrichment program participants learn software engineering, technology, entrepreneurship and math (STEM). During each lesson, students will assemble a robot that will preform a predetermined task. Constructing these robots will develop each student’s ability to create computer algorithms and capability to implement those computed codes.
Each student in Robo Bricks enrichment program will design a software and mechanical engineering project. Students will be critiqued by potential “investors” after they present their project proposals.  This enrichment program introduces its participants to many important professional skills that we hope they will later be able to employ in their careers.

Ages 6-12

Average lesson duration: 75 minutes

Program Subjects Include

  • Learn English software engineering terminology
  • Encourage procedural thinking
  • Time management through submitting final project by a given deadline
  • Improving presentation skills
  • Working in teams efficiently
  • Familiarization with computer orientation
  • Gaining information system and media literacy
  • Progressing critical and creative thinking
  • Gadgets and games
  • Modern Robots to execute different task 

Robotics 

Robotic and Software Engineering (R&SE), course focuses on exploring the world of robotics from a professional engineering perspective. Special emphasis on programming solutions promotes the creation of sophisticated and accurate robots.  This encourages the comprehensive learning of science, technology, mechanical and software engineering, and math (STEM).

In order to provide a real life simulation of the complex engineering challenges that exist in the industry, R&SE enrichment program uses extensive teamwork and collaborative efforts. The program is modeled after university engineering curricula in order to prepare students for the industrial world. Participants will tackle engineering challenges similar to that of university courses and solve them by using the EV3 graphics programming.

Ages 10-15

Average lesson duration: 75 minutes

Program Subjects Include

  • Amusement park
  • Heavy construction equipment
  • Vehicles
  • Robots to perform complex missions
  • Gadgets and games

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.
