Welcome to the Revolution in Education!
At E2 Young Engineers Central Mississauga We are passionate about engineering! We want to share this passion with children by giving them an opportunity to learn and explore their world through playing.
The children are provided the chance to explore science and engineering outside their normal curriculum-based classroom activities, since we believe that children learn best through activities that engage their curiosity and creativity.
Eeach 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.
We help improve and develop crucial kills for academic success as well as for 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
• Organization, self-discipline
•Ability to analyze engineering process – nurturing an interest in how things work and how to fix things when they don’t work (problem solving and critical thinking)
A 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
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 moment
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)
