Welcome to the Revolution in Education!
At E2 Young Engineers Central Mississauga We are passionate about engineering! We want to share this passion with the children by giving them an opportunity to learn and explore their world through playing.
E² Young Engineers provides enrichment programs that focus on learning through play for children aged 4 years and older.
Children are provided the chance to explore science and engineering outside their normal curriculum-based classroom activities, as we believe that children learn best through activities that engage their curiosity and creativity.
Each session provides theoretical knowledge and practical implementation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) through the use of Kid K’nexer® and Lego® bricks. Our unique method incorporates stories, experiments and demonstrations that are specially designed to deliver a multi-sensory experience. In this way, the learning experience is enhanced and made more memorable.
The programme can play a supporting role in the Curriculum for Excellence by offering children a set of interdisciplinary experiences that help them gain the skills and confidence to embrace and use technologies and to develop practical skills while working with a range of materials, tools and software..
E² Young Engineers programmes help improve and develop skills which are crucial for academic success as well as survival in today’s fast moving and competitive environment:
•Social and emotional skills ( patience, teamwork, communication, resilience and persistence)
•Self-confidence and self-esteem
•Fine motor skills
• Organisation, self-discipline, how to follow instructions
•Ability to analyse engineering process – nurturing an interest in how things work and how to fix things when they don’t work (problem solving and critical thinking)
•Resilience – “it’s ok if it doesn’t work the first time”, “let’s try and work out why it doesn’t work” or “if it breaks, lets do it again”
