Young Engineers LEGO Challenge After School

The Main Goal and Idea behind the program

The main goal of Young Engineers after school programs is to provide theoretical and practical knowledge on basic principles in mathematics, science and engineering using motorized LEGO® bricks and other methods that produce motion.

The main idea of Young Engineers LEGO® Bricks Challenge is learning the subjects through stories and demonstrations. The highlight of each lesson is the building stage of a model that demonstrates the lesson’s subject using LEGO® bricks and Technic LEGO®. Each participant receives our unique Young Engineers kit which has been designed and manufactured especially for this purpose.

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.
