At Young Engineers we believe in engaging our students’ education processes while developing their ability to learn. We understand that every child has a different technique for learning and retaining information, yet we have found that making learning fun is the lowest common denominator for successful education. We have meticulously generated hands-on curricula, which combine education and entertainment, creating our unique “edutainment” method.
At Young Engineers, our initiative has always been to establish an original and unparalleled approach to educating the engineers and scientists of tomorrow. We do this by creating engaging educational experiences they can enjoy early on. Our various programs’ curricula provide students with the opportunity to overcome the challenges of the engineering and the scientific workforce and, as a result, they feel more confident and knowledgeable because this environment will help them develop the necessary skill sets.
Young Engineers has implemented two teaching techniques in creating our edutainment method: The Spiral Learning and the PBL methods.
The Spiral Learning method
Our Spiral Learning technique can be found in every single Young Engineers lesson, as well as in the curricula of each program. Beginning with basic building skills, engineering terms, sophisticated models, software programming, we continually working to advance these lessons and skills. Spiral Learning is in our core value system for how we educate. Each enrichment
programs’ curriculum always builds upon the lessons of the one before.
Problem Based Learning
Problems, Products, and Projects:
Problem Based Learning: After the construction of a model, our Young Engineers instructors will ask the student to enhance their model in order to solve a given problem demonstrated in that lesson.
Product Based Learning: Students build a product that demonstrates the scientific principles taught in that lesson.
Project Based Learning: Through planning and executing a project from start to finish, students develop their team-building and presentation skills. In addition, they will improve their organizational and time management abilities.
