Robotics has been one of the most important 21st century skillset needed to survive in the 4th technological revolution. Can your kids afford to skip this module?
"21st century skills comprise skills, abilities, and learning dispositions that have been identified as being required for success in 21st century society and workplaces by educators, business leaders, academics, and governmental agencies. This is part of a growing international movement focusing on the skills required for students to master in preparation for success in a rapidly changing, digital society. Many of these skills are also associated with deeper learning, which is based on mastering skills such as analytic reasoning, complex problem solving, and teamwork. These skills differ from traditional academic skills in that they are not primarily content knowledge-based.
During the latter decades of the 20th century and into the 21st century, society has undergone an accelerating pace of change in economy and technology. Its effects on the workplace, and thus on the demands on the educational system preparing students for the workforce, have been significant in several ways. Beginning in the 1980s, government, educators, and major employers issued a series of reports identifying key skills and implementation strategies to steer students and workers towards meeting the demands of the changing workplace and society."
Robotics takes education technology to a new level, creating the next evolution in teaching. That’s because introducing robotics to schools means making STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) skills and knowledge hands-on and fun, to prepare students for the future in a way that feels more like creativity and less like homework.
Robotics requires all of the subjects of STEM, so it’s a well-cover approach to educational technology and learning. As the world evolves to this new era of globalisation brought upon by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, big data analytics, robotics, artificial intelligence (AI) and wireless technologies (5G) are the new norms shaking up how we live and work.
Robots have always been a captivating piece of technology, programmable to move, make noise, light up, and follow instructions as directed. It is one of the most fun and educational activity to build one’s own robot and controlling it with how the student perceive it should be doing.
In school syllabus, robots encourage problem-solving, creative thinking, and a healthy mindset for competition that drives innovation from students.
Coding and other STEM concepts can seem very mind boggling, especially to younger students. Reading about technology or robotics in a book is perhaps the traditional way to learn, but putting that theory into practice by building or controlling a robot is hands-on learning that sticks around for the future. It also takes teamwork to make a robotics project run smoothly, and that’s a skill everyone needs.
Young Engineers Singapore offers a various of STEM Robotic and coding classes and holiday programs with the intent to make it educational and entertaining environments. Our educational syllabus and tools are used worldwide with 46 countries adopting our pedological method. And our 21st century education has been endorsed by Harvard Graduates School and local NIE.
Children start playing with Lego when they are 3 years old. Through Lego, they develop fine motor skills and the ability to work progressively in stages, they acquire planning skills and enjoy an imaginative and social game. Lego serves as tool that evokes motivation and a desire to develop such skills.
The program will expose the children to the concept of creative leisure, placing an emphasis on planning and execution skills, flexibility and social interaction with their peers. The children will learn how to independently build models in stages and increasing levels of difficulty. They will get to know the models’ functional uses and expand their usage with appropriate building additions. In addition, the children will play with their group mates and the game will combine social rules, such as playing in turn, cooperating in a group toward achieving a joint product, structured game with instructions and rules, imaginary and free play.
Young Engineers believes in teaching through the Spiral Learning Technique. In this method, each enrichment program builds on the previous program’s curriculum. In addition, we always encourage newcomers and reteach lessons to make sure all students are up to speed.
With the tangible coding language of Algobrix®, students begin by constructing a building block model, then create various lines of code using function & Parameter blocks. Finally, by pressing the Play block, the robot will perform the coding sequence.
By matching function and parameter blocks together, the child creates a command for the robot. For example, moving it forward or turning on a red light. By putting the blocks together one after the other, it creates a code that the model will execute.
In each lesson, the student will perform high level programming tasks such as Algorithm planning, Functions & Parameters, Conditioning, Loops, Multithreading, Debugging, Race Condition, sensor applications and more.
AlgoPlay equips students with the professional skills necessary for understanding the logic behind almost any coding language that exists today.
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
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.
The Robobricks 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.
Robotics & Software Engineering course focuses on exploring the world of Robotics from a professional engineering perspective. Special emphasis on programming solutions will promote the creation of sophisticated and accurate robots to study the fields of Science, Technology, Mechanical and Software Engineering, and Math (STEM) comprehensively.

"Apparently it wasn't easy to find a Lego Robotic course for a five years old. Most courses available there are catered for elder kids who could at least handle a computer & mouse. So imagine how thrilled I was when I discovered Young Engineers. I am a fan of Lego but has zero knowledge of Robotics. It was my boy who kept pestering me that he wanted to join as he enjoyed the trial class he had in school before. Young Engineers staff and instructors are very friendly & helpful. I appreciated the flexibility given in make-up classes as we travelled often (hence missed quite a bit of the lessons). They are passionate & went beyond to make sure my boy understand & enjoy the lessons. The progress report was short but concise, detailed enough to allow parents insight of what had been learnt in the classroom & more importantly key areas for improvement. The fact that my boy was the one that has to rush me to the class every week is the best testimony of how much fun he has had. Thank you!"
