Young Engineers – Central New Jersey Programs

Big Builders

Knex programOur popular program for young kids in preschools and daycares for ages 4-6 where we enhance them with tactile, motor, and spatial skills while teaching science and engineering principles using K’nex®. These programs are conducted in small groups to ensure each engineer gains the intended knowledge and experience.

Suitable for: 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
  • Transportation and Traffic Safety: Understanding different types of vehicles including motorcycles, trucks, cars and boats.

LEGO Challenge

young engineers conveyerOur most popular program introduces elementary school children (ages 6-12) to the basic principles of mathematics, science and engineering. By integrating the basic arithmetic learned in school with an intuitive active learning process, children grasp a better understanding of the fundamentals of physics.

Suitable for: Ages 6-12

Average lesson duration: 60/75 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 and reaction law, buoyancy, torques, fulcrum, load division, angular momentum, and more.

GaliLEGO

Young Engineers LEGO KitThe 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.

Suitable for: Ages 10-13

Average lesson duration: 75 minutes

Program Subjects Include

  • Basic and complex mathematics: instructors teach basic math, from addition and subtraction to exponents.
  • Powers and principles in physics: centrifugal and centripetal forces, the power of inertia, potential energy, kinetic energy, action and reaction law, buoyancy, torques, fulcrum, load division, angular momentum, and more. Archimedes, Sir Isaac Newton, Einstein, and more.

Statistical Overview

After extensive testing, it has been statistically proven that the 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.
