Young Engineers San Diego North County Programs

e² Young Engineers represents thousands of children around the world who participate in our after school edutainment curricula. Our sessions provide theoretical knowledge and practical implementation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) basics.

Young Engineers provide an engaging, hands-on learning platform. The educational goals are achieved by using LEGO® and K’nex® assembly kits uniquely designed by our staff, demonstrating the scientific principles in a fun and accessible fashion; combining experiments that form scientific intuition with stories that capture the imagination.

Children’s games are significant;

They have a tremendous role shaping the child’s life”

Big Builders

Our 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.

Bricks Challenge

Our 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: 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.

Bricks Challenge Values

  • Develops motor skills
  • Encourages creative thinking
  • Develops the ability of analyzing engineering process
  • Strengthens social aptitude and develops communication and teamwork ability
  • Expands horizons and general knowledge in physics and various natural phenomena

Building and Investigating

  • Amusement park rides
  • Aircraft
  • Transportation vehicles
  • Cranes
  • Elevators

Galileo Technic

The Galileo Technic 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 9-13

Average lesson duration: 75 minutes

Program Subjects and Values Include

  • Reinforcing the topics in Bricks Challenge with more in depth take on the Physics principles
  • Building more complex models and create more challenges that will encourage creative thinking
  • Develops the ability to analyze engineering processes
  • Emphasis on teamwork and communication
  • Builds self-confidence and sense of capability
