Robotics Curriculum

Young Engineers Robotics, STEM and Coding Curriculum

The 21st century introduced us to many social and cultural experiences with rapid technological development. Young Engineers Robotics, STEM and coding curriculums are based on the most crucial skills students need to prosper in our current world. Skills include; high-order thinking, critical and creative thinking, acquiring information systems and media literacy, developing individual and social responsibilities; and lifelong learning.

The Young Engineers programs are based on the "spiral education method," in which, the student is introduced to complex terms and information from a different perspective at different levels. Our pedagogical level of programs and the methods we use are always updated in order to give our students the tools they need to succeed now and in the future. Most importantly, by incorporating inquiry based principles and a highly adaptable framework to suit students of various needs, Young Engineers’ STEM and coding programs help to foster a love of learning. The most important gift an education should give a student is a love of learning.


At Young Engineers, our Robotics curriculum are endorsed by Global Education Innovation Initiative (GEII), a collaboration between Harvard Graduate School and Singapore’s National Institute of Education (NIE) as the 21st century education system.


Young Engineers also received the Seal of Excellence by EU Commission for our high quality and innovative proposals judged by impact, excellence, quality and efficiency of implementation.


In 2018, Prince William met with our CEO to learn more about Young Engineers and the newest development, Algobrix, revolutionary coding program without using any screens or tablets.

Overview of our Award-Winning Robotics Programs

Junior Bricks Challenge – Robotics STEM Program

Average lesson duration: 60 minutes
Suitable for ages: 3 – 5 years (Preschool)


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 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.

Bricks Challenge – Robotics STEM Program

Suitable for Ages: 6 – 11 (Primary School)
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.

Galileo Technic – Robotics STEM Program

Suitable for: Primary 3 – 6 OR Young Engineers’ Bricks Challenge graduates
Average lesson duration: 75 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.

ALGOPLAY – Robotics Coding Program

Average lesson duration: 75 minutes
Suitable for ages: 5 – 9 years


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.

RoboBricks – Robotics Coding Program

Suitable for: Primary 3 – 6, or graduates of one of the Young Engineers Robotics STEM or Coding Programs
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.

Robotics & Software Engineering – Robotics Coding Program

Suitable for: Primary 5 – Secondary 3
Average lesson duration: 90 minutes


R&SE 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.


The R&SE enrichment program offers extensive team work and cooperation to reflect the complex engineering challenges that exist in the industry. The program aligns with the university engineering curricula in order to prepare students for the industrial world. Students will tackle the same engineering challenges and solve them by using the EV3 graphics programing.
