Is your kid well-prepare to handle the jobs needed for 4th industrial revolution and 5G mobile technology?
What do the following 6 professions have in common?
- App developer
- Social Media Manager
- Driverless car engineer
- Cloud computing specialist
- Big Data Scientist
- YouTube Content Creator
Answer: None of them exist 15 years ago.
Why is this important to you?
Here are the 2 important revolutions you need to pay attention for your kids’ future!
1st industrial revolution: The Age of Mechanical Production using Steam (1784)
2nd industrial revolution: The Age of Mass Production using Electricity (1870)
3rd industrial revolution: The Digital Revolution via Computing (1960)
4th industrial revolution: Major Society Transformation (2010)
1st mobile generation (1G): Phone calls only (1981)
2nd mobile generation (2G): SMS and MMS (1992)
3rd mobile generation (3G): video call, share files, surf the internet, watch TV online (2001)
4th mobile generation (4G): higher voice quality, easy access to instant messaging services and social media, quality streaming and make faster downloads (2011)
5th mobile generation (5G): new IoT trends, such as connected cars, smart cities and IoT in the home and office (2020)
We are on the middle of the 4th industrial revolution and the 5th generation (5G) of mobile technology where Robotic, artificial intelligence and autonomous vehicles will be the main driving force. Amazon is already moving towards full robotic automation for the handling of their orders. Google, Facebook and many other big technology players are moving to enhance human experience with artificial intelligence. Cars will no longer need to be driven by humans. The robots are here to stay whether you like it or not.
There has never been a more important time to introduce stem robotic education than now. Our school education curriculum has established a solid foundation for academic excellence but fall short on career excellence. More STEM jobs are required to meet the increasingly demand for the next generation of careers that our kids will be exposed to.
Our school curriculums are starting to adjust to this revolution
- MOE is gearing towards less focus on grades and more focus on enrichment.
- Coding is made compulsory for upper primary students.
- Robotic will be introduced as another subject in secondary school.
- NUS has made computational thinking a compulsory module even if you are not an engineering faculty student.
Young Engineers Singapore has been around the past 2 years to support this new education revolution. Our international award-winning programs provides students with the head start in the field of STEM education and computational thinking.
Why Young Engineers programs have been so effective?
- Education must be entertaining, otherwise it won’t be effective. Using LEGO as the educational tool is the most important form of entertainment. Our exclusive LEGO kit design allows kids to spend more time to build and play rather than searching for the right parts to fit.
- It is based on a “do-not-force-it” learning method. Kids learn at their own pace and their own creation. No competition, no tests, no grades.
- 1-2 key concepts will be taught in a number of different ways to allow them a different dimension of using it as an application. For example, centrifugal force can be taught with our Ferris wheel, Carousel and Laundry machine models. In this way, students will be able to grasp and appreciate the theory in greater depth. Most of the key concepts such as belt transmission, speed and power increasing transmission are illustrated with a few different applications.
- Our program is structure in such a way that key concepts and principles are first introduced in a fun and easy to understand ways such as showing an animation or relating them to Everyday tasks. Then they will start to build a model for that lesson which further demonstrate the concept in an application way. Once they are done, they can exhibit their creativity by improving on it with additional features. Finally, they will be given a problem to solve. There is not a single second where they fail to learn, have fun and apply their knowledge in any application.
- Our curriculum is accepted and endorse by renown university such as Carnegie university as the best way to impart stem knowledge.
- Our workbook is created by Engineers with more than 20 years of engineering experience in major corporation.
While many Lego STEM programs teaches the students how to build a toy car, Young Engineers program allows them to understand the mechanism of how transmission works.
“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.”
Mummy of James, 9 YO
“The main thing I like about Young Engineers’ Robo Brick program is that the child gets to come up with their own lego robotic model and program to move based on what they have learnt through a series of guided sessions. The child is not just following instructions to build or code, but it makes them think and design their own desired movable robot.”
