Bricks Challenge 

young engineers conveyer

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 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® models.  Once the concepts have been demonstrated students enjoy hands on building the 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.

Encourage independent creative and critical thinking | Develop the ability to analyze engineering processes & the laws of physics | Foster planning & time management

The Bricks Challenge program introduces elementary school children (ages 6-12) to the basic principles of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). By integrating basic arithmetic learned in school with an intuitive active learning process, children grasp a better understanding of the fundamentals of physics and engineering concepts.

Ages: 5-11 (1st – 6th grade)

Average lesson duration: 75 minutes

Program Subjects Include 

Basic and complex mathematics: Instructors teach basic math, from addition and subtraction to exponents

Famous scientific and philosophical figures: Archimedes, Sir Isaac Newton, Einstein, and more

Powers and principles in physics: Centrifugal and centripetal forces, the power of inertia, potential energy, kinetic energy, action/reaction law, buoyancy, torque, fulcrum, load division, angular momentum, and more.

We build fun models such as

Race car

Pirate ship

Conveyor belt

Power plant

Windmill

Catapult

The lever principles

Motorcycle

Laundry machine

Rescue Jeep

Wind Turbine

Crane

Lifting using pulleys

Rescue helicopter

Amusement park carousel and many more

Statistical Overview

After extensive testing, it has been statistically proven that children participating in e² Young Engineers enrichment programs achieve high grades within all scientific subjects taught at school.

It has also been proven that elementary school students who join Young Engineers community obtain the mathematical knowledge required to succeed when tackling the more complex scientific curricula taught at middle and high schools.
