**Young E****ngineers – North West Sydney Programs**

**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 – 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, buoyancy, torque, fulcrum, load division, angular momentum, and more.

**GaliLEGO**

The GaliLEGO program investigates mechanical systems from a real engineer’s point of view. The program focuses on finding solutions using teamwork in order to build complex machines. Children will explore the mechanical, mathematical and physical aspects of machinery and the logical process that goes into building them.

**Ages 10-14**

**Average lesson duration: 75 minutes**

**RoboLEGO**

The course objective is to introduce the students to theoretical and practical aspects of the fields of Technology, Software Engineering, Math and Entrepreneurship.

The course develops algorithmic thinking and program implementation, using the LEGO® WeDo graphic programming. During each lesson, students will build a robot using LEGO® parts and program it according to the required functionality. Most programming tasks will be performed using English terms.

This enrichment program objective is achieved when the students design a software and mechanical engineering project, study its market and use rhetorical methods to make a successful presentation to investors.

**Suitable for: 4 ^{th}-6^{th} grade**

**or 3 ^{rd} grade graduates of one of the Young Engineers mechanical engineering programs**

**Average lesson duration: 60/90 minutes**

**Statistical Overview**

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.
