Childrens Services, Childcare, Education
The e² Young Engineers franchise provides enrichment programmes for children in science, technology, engineering and mathematics and software engineering. This service is of vital significance in a world where the importance of technology is growing every day and where parents realise that an education in the STEM field will give their children exciting career opportunities.
This is done in a fun and accessible way through games, using K’nex®, Engino® and LEGO® bricks. In other words the franchise adopts an ‘edutainment’ approach to learning. The service consist of special workshops that are developed with all children in mind, including those with learning disabilities and those who have high ability in these subjects.
The service includes 5 annual programmes: Big Builders aimed at 4-6 year olds, using K’nex parts: the Lego Challenge programme is for 6-10 year olds; GaliLego is directed at 10-12 year olds or Young Engineers; Lego Challenge graduates; ROBOLego is aimed at 7-11 year olds while the newest offering is the APP which contains all the guides for building in 360 degrees.
The e² Young Engineers franchise sessions are fun as they are taught through demonstrations, experiments and stories, addressing all aspects of learning.
The children are taught in a playful manner, so that the experience is not akin to a being at school – they do not realise that they are being taught. The idea is that the children will see, hear and understand what is being taught, and will be able to apply their newly acquired knowledge in both education and everyday life.
