Young Engineers Workshops for Overseas Students Aims to introduce them to a short courses on Lego Robotic STEM. 

The students will be exposed to key Scientific principles ranging from mechanical engineering to software engineering during this series of workshops.

Day 1 : Brick Challenge Program on Scientific and Mechanical engineering principles

Duration: 3 hours

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.

Day 2 & 3: Galileo and advance mechanical principles

Duration: 3 hours

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.

Day 4 & 5: Robobricks and software principles

Duration: 3 hours

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.
