Bricks Challenge Enrichment Program

img

Suitable for: 6-11 Years Old

Average lesson duration: 75 minutes

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.


Young Engineers Bricks Challenge Enrichment Program

 

 

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.

 

Bricks Challenge Objectives and Values

  • Develop time planning and management skills.
  • Encourage independent creative-inventive thinking.
  • Develop the ability to analyze engineering processes.
  • Broaden knowledge of physical laws and various natural phenomena.
  • Improve spatial vision.
  • Develop a sense of self-efficacy.
  • Develop interpersonal communication skills.

Building and Investigating Exciting Theme Models

  • Amusement park rides.
  • Aircraft.
  • Various means of transportation.
  • Cranes.

Galileo Technic Enrichment Program

Suitable for: 8-12 Years Old or graduates of Bricks Challenge program

Average lesson duration: 90 minutes

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.

Young Engineers Galileo Technic Enrichment Program

Program Main Topics
  • Introducing students to new engineering terms while implementing all Bricks Challenge subjects.
  • The course will give a new overview of the following engineering mechanisms: Multi-channel transmission systems, mechanical coordination, the movement of a body on a rotational axis, center of gravity and fulcrum, different ratchet implementations, energy depletion, recycling, limited transmission belt implementations.
  • Statistics: probability, percentages and fair games, semi-automatic launching mechanism, parallel working, radar, axial steering, differential and differential lock systems.

 

Galileo Technic Objectives and Values

  • Encourage independent and creative thinking.
  • Develop the ability to analyze engineering processes.
  • Acquire engineering implementation skills.
  • Develop problem solving skills.
  • Broaden horizons and general knowledge of physical laws and various natural phenomena.
  • Improve spatial vision.
  • Develop sense of self-efficacy.
  • Develop social connections, as well as communication and interpersonal work skills.
  • Acquire 21st century skills, including integration into modern life and high order thinking skills.

Building and Investigating Exciting Theme Models

  • Various launchers.
  • Construction equipment.

Robobricks Enrichment Program

Suitable for: 8-12 Years Old or graduates of Bricks Challenge program

Average lesson duration: 90 minutes

The Robo Bricks 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.

 

Young Engineers Robobricks Enrichment Program
