Junior Engineers



Through the Junior Engineers educational program, children are transformed into young scientists!

As Junior Engineers, children begin their journey by playing and creating their first code algorithmically, so that the “Sandwich” (Kids First Coding) can successfully carry out its mission! 

Children learn to observe and reflect on their environment. They also learn the fundamental building blocks of mechanical structures and the physical assumptions governing them, such as gear motion, pulleys, and levers.

Through exploration, children collaborate and “construct ” their own knowledge. They use appropriate building materials to create increasingly complex models of various themes. They discover the utility of Simple Machines (gears, pulleys, and levers), which form the foundation of any structure, through experimentation (Engineering).

The program’s goal is for the children to work together as a group to understand that a perfect machine is made up of perfect construction and perfect programming, as well as to observe the world around them, such as trains, cars, and garage doors, through the eyes of an Engineer.

Lilliputian Scientists – Objectives

Upon completion of the program, students will have:
1. constructed models of everyday objects,
2. been introduced to Simple Machines and their related concepts in a playful way,
3. explored science concepts through exciting experiments,
4. expressed themselves creatively and developed communication and collaboration skills.
