Bricks Challenge 

young engineers conveyerThe Bricks Challenge program introduces Elementary-aged children to the basic principles of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) through storytelling and building exclusive motorized models with LEGO® bricks. By integrating basic arithmetic learned in school with an intuitive active learning process, children grasp a better understanding of the fundamentals of physics and engineering concepts needed in tomorrow’s job market. Students get a project based learning curriculum in weekly increments, introducing the basic mechanics skills that will be required knowledge in middle and high school STEM programs.

Ages: 6-12 (1st – 5th grade)

Average lesson duration: 75 minutes

Location: Click on the “Locations” tab above to see where our classes are happening!

Program Subjects Include: 

Basic and complex mathematics: Instructors reinforce basic math skills taught in the classroom, from addition and subtraction to exponents!

Famous scientific and philosophical figures: Archimedes, Da Vinci, Sir Isaac Newton, Einstein, the Wright Brothers and more!

Powers and principles in physics: Centrifugal and centripetal forces, the power of inertia, potential energy, kinetic energy, action/reaction law, buoyancy, torque, fulcrum, load division, angular momentum, and more.

Statistical Overview

After extensive testing, it has been statistically proven that children participating in e² Young Engineers enrichment programs achieve higher grades in all STEM subjects taught at school.

It has also been proven that elementary school students who join the Young Engineers community obtain the mathematical knowledge required to succeed when tackling the more complex scientific curricula taught at middle and high schools. Prepare your child for the intensive STEM curriculum by giving them an enrichment program that also introduces classical mechanics in a unique and fun way!
