Many Lego® based STEM after school programs are really nothing more than an excuse for parents to leave their children in school for an extra hour while hoping that at least they’re learning something. For example, children leave our competitor’s programs feeling like they learned how to build a toy car. They leave our programs able to explain how a transmission works. Our workbook is deliberately design to make sure that the student understand the scientific, engineering and mathematics principle behind the models they are building. None of our competitor is doing anything close to this to make sure the kids learn about STEM.
Hear from our happy parents
James really enjoyed his classes at Young Engineers a lot. He has learnt engineering principles through fun play with LEGOs which is not taught in school. He is able to explain the concepts that he has learnt. The teachers and staff are very helpful and patient in teaching and helping him improve on his LEGO builts.

21st Century Skillset
We prepare children for success by teaching the 21st century skills which experts have identified as the most important factors in career success. These include teamwork, problem solving skills, the ability to think creatively and applied learning.
Young Engineers curriculum is based on the most crucial skills students need to prosper in our current world. Skills include; high-order thinking, critical and creative thinking, acquiring information systems and media literacy, developing individual and social responsibilities; and lifelong learning. The Young Engineers programs are based on the “spiral education method,” in which, the student is introduced to complex terms and information from a different perspective at different levels. Our pedagogical level of programs and the methods we use are always updated in order to give our students the tools they need to succeed now and in the future.
Another happy parent’s testimonial
“Has always advocate this kind of learning through fun approach. Your program of allowing them to learn through their familiar toy, Lego has certainly taken this a notch higher. My kid seriously look forward to his class every Saturday and has immensely enjoyed every lesson. The instructors are friendly and the course workbook indeed help to adequately sums up the day’s learning.” – Tammie
Exclusive Lego kit
In addition to the regular programs, Young Engineers offers other programs from its proprietary kit. Over 200 lessons and models can be built from our kit, including programs for children with special needs, summer camps, workshops for seniors, birthday parties, and more.
Many of our competitors simply bring a large box of loosely organized Lego® pieces for the children to build with. The organized look of our kits will reinforce the idea that we are not merely a company that plays with toys. Our kits, like our classes, are structured in a very deliberate manner. By making the children responsible for organizing the kits at the end of the class, not a single educational opportunity is missed!

After four years of activity, rapid growth and global expansion, a statistical association has been established that proves those participating in the various Young Engineers enrichment programs show clear signs of increased concentration and creativity, as well as success in science studies.
Young Engineers enrichment programs are based on a “do not force it” method. This progressive method of learning gives children the best tools to learn significant theoretical content, and helps them to overcome their restraints while encouraging independent thinking.
