Enrichment Programs – Young Engineers
Welcome to e² Young Engineers. This online community represents thousands of children around the world who participate in our unique enrichment programs. These programs teach scientific and mathematical principles through the use of K’nex® and LEGO® bricks. We are proud to introduce you to our fun and fulfilling methods of teaching and learning. Enjoy your journey!
For the parents it’s an enrichment program – for the children it’s a game
Young Engineers – K’nexers
The K’nexers enrichment program develops tactile, motor, dexterity, and spatial skills while discovering solutions for introductory level engineering problems using K’nex®. Children play together and learn about animals and transportation while simultaneously learning principles of biology and geometry.
Average session duration: 45 minutes Suitable for ages: 4–6 years (preschool)
Young Engineers - LEGO® challenge
The LEGO® bricks challenge program is designed to help participants learn physics and mathematics in an intuitive way. This enrichment program introduces elementary school age children to the basic principles of math and science by integrating engineering fundamentals with the
school curriculum. Lesson duration: 75 minutes
Suitable for: 1st-5th grade
Young Engineers - GaliLEGOtech
The GaliLEGOtech program allows Young Engineers to investigate mechanical systems in a team based setting. Participants use team building exercises to discover the logic behind mechanical, mathematical and physical aspects of machinery.
Lesson duration: 75 minutes
For: 5th–9th grade OR LEGO Challenge graduates
Young Engineers - Robotics & Software Engineering
The Robotics and Software Engineering program combines work and play to teach the theoretic of software and mechanics. During this lesson, students design and create robots using engineering software. Participants work in teams to optimize usage of programming mechanisms used to operate their robot.
Lesson duration: 90 min. Suitable for: 5th–9th grade
Young engineers - Special Workshops
e² Young Engineers has developed a number of special LEGO® brick workshops designed to enhance a number of one-off occasions, including birthday parties, summer camp, and take your child to work days. A number of specific workshops have been designed for those with special needs as well as gifted children.
