Young Engineers Bricks Challenge Enrichment Program
Suitable for: 6-11 Years Old
Average lesson duration: 75 minutes
Young Engineers LEGO Robotic S.T.E.M education is the new 21st century education system integrating “applied learning” where students learn by engaging in direct application of skills, theories and models.
Our Bricks Challenge program introduces the 24 key concepts and scientific principles and incorporates them into the projects where in every lesson, the kids will be building a different LEGO models. When they completed the whole Brick Challenge program comprising of 30 lessons, they will be equipped with the knowledge of these 24 key scientific and engineering concepts.
For example, one of the key principles in the world of Robotic is the principle of “Symmetry”. Without a clear understanding of this principle, most kids will build a model without following this law of “symmetry” and at the end, they realized that their Robots do not work at all. Our instructors will debug with them and make them understand why it does not work.
We teach the law of “gravity” by making an elevator project and introduce Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein (guess how are they related to this law of gravity?)
Within one year since launching this program in early 2018, we already had 195 students experiencing our Bricks Challenge programs.
Hear from some of our happy parents on how this program benefits their kids!
And yes, we do provide student progress report card for every term ending, with photos of the models that the students built and assessing them based on motor skills, spatial vision, communication skills, self-efficacy & active listening.
Our Lego Robotic S.T.E.M education program is highly addictive. Most kids look forward to every lessons as they get to build different models and have fun with them while learning another scientific and engineering principles.
The best proof is to let parent speak about our programs
"So How Does My Kids Benefit From This Program?"
Check Out Our Statistic Data Conducted in A Young Engineers Class in 2012 in Israel.
- The children who register for the class have high scholastic achievements and high level of universal knowledge
- 88% of the students attending the class have high grades in math ranging from 85 to 100
- Besides knowing how to build models, 81% of the children attending the class learn how to organize their day more efficiently.
- 42% of the students indicated that the class makes them think about things they would like to do when they grow up.
- Most of the students in the class (53%) believed that participation in the class helps them in school in subjects such as mathematics, geometry and music.
- 89% of the students learn to make more constructive use of their time as a result of their participation.
- The class helps students develop skills for critical thinking. It also contributes to the development and implementation of personal abilities as well as to making decisions under pressure, logistic thinking and planning.
- Every lesson results in a product. Every child succeeds in constructing a model. This gives the children a sense of success and satisfaction with their own abilities. The result is person empowerment and development of self-confidence among all of the children who have participated in class.
Program Main Topics
- Basic and Complex Mathematical Operations: The integration between planning and building the model involves the calculation of energy transformations, which enables the teaching of mathematical topics such as addition and subtraction, and up to exponentiation.
- Introducing Philosophers and Theoreticians:Archimedes, Newton, Da Vinci and more.
- Physical Forces and Laws: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.
