What is STEM?
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are becoming increasingly important due to technology pervading every aspect of our lives. All careers in the future will require STEM skills, as humans increasingly manage machines to get their daily tasks done. In order to be future-ready, children today need a STEM education – an education that gives them not just information but the ability to process information correctly.
· Critical thinking
· Problem solving
· Data analysing
· High level of comfort for all things mechanical
have become essential if children want to thrive in a digital future.
What is e² Young Engineers®?
At Young Engineers, we offer unique STEM enrichment programs. Students get to build and program various motorized LEGO® models while understanding its application to our daily lives and the problem it solves. For the parents it’s an enrichment program, for the children it’s a game. What Young Engineers delivers is e² – Education with Entertainment.
Our sessions are:
· After school and during weekends
· Run 75 minutes sessions – once a week for 9-10 weeks of term.
· Teach students from 4 to 12 years.
· Lessons build on one another so few topics are explored deeply during the term.
· New models, problem solving challenges and engineering principles covered every week.
We also offer a variety of different activities like school holiday camps, school incursions, LEGO® birthday parties and workshops for senior citizens.
How can children prepare themselves for a career 15-20 years down the line? Professions of the future are inconceivable today, just as many of our careers (graphic design, online commerce, technical support, etc) were unimaginable to our parents. The secret lies in giving them skills that will be usable across all fields of study and job requirements.
We believe that every child deserves an opportunity to develop this future resilience. Young Engineers – Melbourne South is delivering just that. We expose students to the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), equipping them with the necessary skills for the economy of the future, all while having fun with LEGO®.
We are committed to helping our children build their tomorrow, today.
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.
These tests have been conducted by the
Center for Cooperation and Advancement (CCA)
