Young Engineers – Central Mississauga Programs
January 06 2017 Winter Sessions
25 $ + HST per session–$200.00 + HST for 8 sessions
This fun and unique program is for young kids in preschool, daycare and kindergarten (ages 4-6). The Big Builders program incorporates tactile, motor, and spatial skills while introducing science and engineering principles using K’nex® building blocks. These programs are conducted in small groups to ensure each Big Builder obtains the intended knowledge and experience.
Ages: 4-6 (Pre-school)
Average Lesson Duration: 45 minutes
Program Subjects Include
- Physics Principles: Basic principles such as balance and buoyancy
- Animal Kingdom: Various animals – domestic and wild
- Biology: Natural pest control, pollination and symbiosis
- The Universe: Space, Earth and the Solar System
- Geometry: Characteristics of basic geometric shapes
$28.0 session + HST per session–$225.00 + HST for 8 sessions
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: 6-12 (1st – 5th 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
- Torque, fulcrum
- Load division
- Angular momentum
(Coming 2018 Winter Break/ registration is currently accepted) $300.00 + HST for 8 sessions
Using LEGO® parts and LEGO® WeDo graphic programming to build robots, Robo Bricks enrichment program participants learn software engineering, technology, entrepreneurship and math (STEM).
During each lesson, students will assemble a robot that will preform a predetermined task. Constructing these robots will develop each student’s ability to create computer algorithms and capability to implement those computed codes.
Each student will design a software and mechanical engineering project.
Suitable for: 4th-6th grade or graduates of
one of the Young Engineers mechanical engineering programs
Average lesson duration: 60/90 minutes
- Algorithm planning
- Formulation of pseudo code
- Flow charts
- We-Do Programming
- Input and output implementations
- loops, multi-threads
- Keyboard operations
- Sensor applications
- Calculation commands.
Robo Bricks also introduces students to realistic professional skills and the world of entrepreneurship.We teach our participants about market study, product page, how Google works, Microsoft Power Point, rhetorical methods.
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)
