Our unique Big Builders enrichment program for preschool develops children’s motor, and spatial skills, while exploring geometric shapes and the animal kingdom using unique flexible parts.
e² Young Engineers believes that children best absorb these subjects through hands-on educational experience.
Using flexible pieces to assemble 3D models, the Big Builders enrichment program aims to enhance motor skills, challenging the children gradually.
The course will provide a hands-on educational experience – discovering basic engineering solutions. The course exposes children to engineering terminology, as well as terms taken from the animal kingdom, science and their current world. Children will develop self-learning skills, both in terms of building technique and knowledge. In addition, the children will develop communication skills while learning and playing with their friends.
Average lesson duration: 45 minutes
Suitable for ages: 4 – 6 years (Preschool)
