Young Engineers – Sydney West, Inner West & North
Lego Challenge The LEGO 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 – 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 & centripetal forces, the power of inertia, potential energy, kinetic energy, action/reaction law, buoyancy, torque, fulcrum, load division, angular momentum, and more.
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)
