The STEM Program introduces children to engineering and mechanical concepts through the use of Lego bricks. Weekly workshops integrate math, science, language arts and social studies. Workshops are developed around themes such as transportation, space, and robotics to engage student interest. During free play time, students are able to explore and create their own designs. e² Young Engineers believes in education through play. Our Big Builders unique alternative learning enrichment program introduces pre-school aged children to scientific concepts through hands-on experiential learning. We offer camps services, before and after-school programs, workshops lunchtime workshops and birthdays parties.

 

 

e² Young Engineers is one of the largest STEM Lego Camps & Robotics enrichment programs in the world and offers an innovative and creative after-school STEM enrichment program designed to help children learn important principles of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) as well as coding, programming, and robotics through a combination of theoretical and practical learning methods that is engaging, effective and fun.

The e² Young Engineers programs follow a unique and specially designed curriculum that use Kid K’nexer® and Lego® building blocks as tools to demonstrate STEM principles by allowing the students to personally build, understand, and observe their learning in action. Learning is made more enjoyable in each e² Young Engineers’ class! Classes are offered to children from ages 4-17. Sign up today!

About Us

Our programs give children the chance to explore aspects of science and engineering outside their normal curriculum-based classroom activities, as we believe that children learn best through activities that engage their curiosity and creativity. Each session provides theoretical knowledge and practical implementation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) through the use of Kid K’nexer® and Lego® bricks. Our unique method incorporates stories, experiments and demonstrations that are specially designed to deliver a multi-sensory experience. In this way, the learning experience is enhanced and made more memorable.

Teaching Methods

Education + Entertainment = Edutainment

At Young Engineers we believe in engaging our students’ education processes while developing their ability to learn. We understand that every child has a different technique for learning and retaining information, yet we have found that making learning fun is the lowest common detonator for successful education. We have meticulously generated hands-on curricula, which combine education and entertainment creating our unique “edutainment” method. Young Engineers has implemented two teaching techniques in creating our edutainment method: The Spiral Learning method and PBL.

Spiral Learning

Our instructors teach the principles and terms of a given lesson on a basic level. We do this through simple demonstrations and stories. The next step of the spiral learning method is introducing these principles in new contexts and in greater depth and detail with each step.

Our Spiral Learning technique can be found in every single Young Engineers lesson, as well as in the curricula of each program, beginning with basic building skills, engineering terms, sophisticated models, software programming and continually working to advance those lessons and skills. Spiral Learning is in our core value system for how we educate.

Each enrichment programs’ curriculum always builds upon the lessons of the before. P3 Based Learning (Problems, Products, and Projects)

Problem Based Leaning: After the construction of a model, our Young Engineers instructors will ask a student to enhance his or her model in order to solve a given problem demonstrated in that lesson.

Product Based Learning: Students build a product that demonstrates the scientific principles taught in that lesson.

Project Based Learning: Through planning and executing of a project from start to finish, students develop their team building and presentation skills. In addition, one will improve his or her organizational and time management abilities.

Big Builders

Knex program

Pre-Schools: 4-6 year-olds
Average lesson duration: 45 minutes

e² Young Engineers believes in education through play. Our Big Builders unique alternative learning enrichment program introduces pre-school aged children to scientific concepts through hands-on experiential learning. We hope that establishing this connection between learning and fun at such a young age will set our participants up for future successful learning and creating.

Our Big Builders will construct 3D models using flexible parts. Students will receive kits complete with building tools and parts exclusively made by Young Engineers for our Big Builders program. These activities will gradually challenge participants in order to advance their fine and gross motor skills. This enrichment program will expose our builders to engineering terminology. In addition students will get be familiarized with simple concepts about the animal kingdom, larger principles of science and their everyday surroundings.

Through their play with co-builders, our young scholars will advance their interpersonal communication. They will gain confidence about his/her own ability to discover and invent.

Overview of Big Builders curriculum 

e2 Young Engineers’ strong core values surround the concept of education through play. We believe that lessons are learned and absorbed more easily through hands-on experiential learning. That is why our students will finish the Big Builders enrichment programing having a better understanding of everyday mathematic and scientific concepts.

Big Builders lessons include discussions about shapes, spatial recognition and moveable verse immovable parts. Our instructors use proper math and science terminology familiarizing students with more accurate language of the field. Builders learn simple addition and subtraction through building their models. Students will also discover basic principles of fractions as they learn the idea of parts of a whole.

We introduce laws of physics on a basic level through demonstrations of centrifugal force, gravity, torque, stability, friction, momentum, mechanical energy, balance, compaction and drive. Additionally, because many of our models have nature/animal themes, students will learn basic concepts of biology.

Big Builders secondary objectives 

Increase knowledge about the world and environment
Enhance sense of community and feelings of belonging
Encourage independent and creative thinking
Develop a sense of self-efficacy and problem solving capabilities
Boost team building, cooperation and group play skills

Bricks Challenge 

1st-5th Grade
Average sesson duration: 75 minutes

Using stories and simple demonstrations to spark imagination and critical thinking, Bricks Challenge is Young Engineers’ most popular enrichment program. With the use of LEGO® building blocks in conjunction with other tools and mechanical parts, our specially trained educators inspire youth participants while teaching theoretical and applied principles of science, technology, mechanical engineering and math (STEM). In addition our students develop their abilities for independent learning and improve their building skills.

 

 

Young Engineers’ Bricks Challenge enrichment program introduces elementary school age students to basic laws of physics and the necessary mathematic equations that coincide with those scientific calculations.

Young Engineers has specially designed a brief classroom style demonstration that is immediately followed by hands-on application through building Young Engineers LEGO® parts  models. Student participants of Bricks Challenge receive our LEGO® bricks kits exclusively made by Young Engineers for our programs. Each lesson is meant to inspire students to create, build and learn through a fun and entertaining LEGO® Challenge experience.

Overview of Bricks Challenge curriculum:

Young Engineers participating in Bricks Challenge can expect to finish the program having learned important theoretical and practical lessons. Bricks Challenge will introduce students to scientists and inventors such as Leonardo di Vinci, Sir Isaac Newton, Archimedes and more. Each of these important figures has played a significant role in the development of science and technology today and we use their stories’ to help inspire and educate our young engineers.

Bricks Challenge participants will gain knowledge of laws of physics such as centrifugal force, centripetal force, force of inertia, kinetic energy, potential energy, law of action-reaction, lift force, torque, leverage points, load distribution, force conservation, angular momentum and more. In addition students will learn the essential mathematic skills that go along with making the scientific calculations they will need in order to build their models.

So far we’ve gone on and on and on about how wonderful our programs are…now we invite you to see what parents and center managers have to say about our programs.

“”Hi-

Our son just completed Lego Challenge offered through Waterford MI Parks and Rec. He LOVED IT! as did all of the other children and parents, plus the kids that came on “bring a Friend Day”…. Please consider starting new sessions asap—we would be glad to participate again. My son reads below his level and has dyslexia—he dreams of being an engineer and your class made him feel confident and that his dream is achievable!”

Sincerely,”
