“Play is the highest form of research.”
~ Albert Einstein
“Almost all creativity involves purposeful play.”
~ Abraham Maslow
“Children learn as they play. Most importantly in play Children learn how to learn.”
– O Fred Donaldson
Indeed, the above 3 quotes sum up the importance of play based learning.
Young Engineers enrichment programs adopt a rational edutainment (the combination of education and entertainment) approach. We have developed a variety of different programs that can be used to teach the most important subjects. Children joining our educational community can learn and enjoy the likes of arithmetic, physics, and mechanical and software engineering.
Our play based curriculum introduced children to a new way of learning via playing. This unique way of imparting education while providing entertainment makes it easier for kids to learn and absorb things they learn. Young Engineers is one of the few schools providing play based learning in Singapore. This is in contrast to most of the conventional schools where there is a teacher in front of the students to teach them about the topics in the MOE curriculum.
the best way to educate children is through games. Games can be tools that help children learn about themselves and the world around them.
that conventional classroom lessons, in which the teacher is dominant 85% of the time, don’t trigger enough interest and curiosity. Curiosity is the primary motivation for studying.
that Young Engineers curricula provide a new platform for children to construct, demonstrate and understand scientific principles through gaming experience; children understand that they need to better understand their learning material in order to improve their gaming.
in knowing how to make children enjoy all learning materials, and how to properly communicate with the child so that they will absorb the subject matter.
Children loves gadgets,
In short, children loves to have fun.
They don't want to do their Math homework that much.
In this modern time, the child is distracted with too many stimulation statistically proven to inflict on their ability to concentrate and damage their intelligence development.
Children's game are significant. They have a tremendous role in shaping a child's life.
One of the most effective way to educate a children is by turning the learning process into a game.
Games are chosen to help the children to learn about themselves and the world around them.
When the child is presented with a problem, they treat it just like a game and try to solve it with great excitement and enthusiasm.
This is why games are so critical to their development.
Young Engineers is proud to present you with our award on fun and fascinating ways to enhance the kids with Mathematics, Physics and engineering skill-sets.
Young Engineers Singapore offers the following programs with fun learning activities incorporating 21st century education system:
Junior Bricks Challenge - STEM Program
Children start playing with Lego when they are 3 years old. Through Lego, they develop fine motor skills and the ability to work progressively in stages, they acquire planning skills and enjoy an imaginative and social game. Lego serves as tool that evokes motivation and a desire to develop such skills.
The program will expose the 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 get to know the models’ functional uses and expand their usage with appropriate building additions. In addition, the children will play with their group mates and the game will combine social rules, such as playing in turn, cooperating in a group toward achieving a joint product, structured game with instructions and rules, imaginary and free play.
AlgoPlay - Coding Program
Young Engineers believes in teaching through the Spiral Learning Technique. In this method, each enrichment program builds on the previous program’s curriculum. In addition, we always encourage newcomers and reteach lessons to make sure all students are up to speed.
With the tangible coding language of Algobrix®, students begin by constructing a building block model, then create various lines of code using function & Parameter blocks. Finally, by pressing the Play block, the robot will perform the coding sequence.
By matching function and parameter blocks together, the child creates a command for the robot. For example, moving it forward or turning on a red light. By putting the blocks together one after the other, it creates a code that the model will execute.
In each lesson, the student will perform high level programming tasks such as Algorithm planning, Functions & Parameters, Conditioning, Loops, Multithreading, Debugging, Race Condition, sensor applications and more.
AlgoPlay equips students with the professional skills necessary for understanding the logic behind almost any coding language that exists today.
Bricks Challenge - STEM Program
Bricks Challenge is our most popular enrichment program. The overall course objective is to impart theoretical and applied knowledge in the fields of Science, Technology, Mechanical Engineering, and Math (STEM) by using LEGO® technic parts and other exciting tools.
The main goal of the course is to illustrate content through stories and demonstrations. Our students will learn math and physical principles through intuitive study, develop their independent learning and improve their building skills.
The course will provide mathematical integration between physical laws and the simple calculations to support them. The laws and mathematics are both illustrated through the construction of exciting LEGO® bricks models. Once the concepts have been demonstrated students enjoy hands on building the YE LEGO® models which provides experiential learning and reinforces the lessons topic. To carry out the building process, students receive a tailor made kit developed by Young Engineers
Galileo Technic - STEM Program
The Galileo Technic advanced enrichment program offers broad knowledge in Science, Technology, Mechanical Engineering, and Math (STEM).
Students explore machines from a professional engineering perspective, focusing on identifying solutions and promoting teamwork to build complex mechanisms.
The program provides an advanced level of thematic study, implementing mechanical engineering principles through building LEGO® parts based models. By analyzing physical, mathematical and technical aspects of a machine’s operation, students will implement the most efficient method for building their machine. The Galileo Technic program utilizes the spiral learning method where students study a certain topic, investigate it from different angles and contexts while integrating the core processes frequently applied by engineers.
This is an in-depth program to extend the Young Engineers – Bricks Challenge program; students will use expert level engineering thinking by considering the physical and mathematical aspects of building efficient machines. The program focuses on individual and group projects to prepare students for the dynamic 21st century working environment.
Robobricks - Coding Program
The Robobricks course objective is to introduce the students to theoretical and practical aspects of the fields of Technology, Software Engineering, Math and Entrepreneurship.
The course develops algorithmic thinking and program implementation, using the LEGO® WeDo graphic programming. During each lesson, students will build a robot using LEGO® parts and program it according to the required functionality. Most programming tasks will be performed using English terms.
This enrichment program objective is achieved when the students design a software and mechanical engineering project, study its market and use rhetorical methods to make a successful presentation to investors.
Robotics & Software Engineering - Coding Program
Robotics & Software Engineering course focuses on exploring the world of Robotics from a professional engineering perspective. Special emphasis on programming solutions will promote the creation of sophisticated and accurate robots to study the fields of Science, Technology, Mechanical and Software Engineering, and Math (STEM) comprehensively.
The R&SE enrichment program offers extensive team work and cooperation to reflect the complex engineering challenges that exist in the industry. The program aligns with the university engineering curricula in order to prepare students for the industrial world.
