Engineering

Lilipoutian Engineers  is designed for Kindergarten students (4 and 5 years old). Children take their first steps in the world of science, technology and engineering. Through play-style activities, children explore concepts, phenomena, create one or more constructions at a time, make observations and draw conclusions about the world around them. Each activity is “desguised” as a unique story that magnetizes the interest of small scientists and invites them to look for solutions to specific problems.

The constructions are done with LEGO DUPLO Training materials. Activities are accompanied by relevant audiovisual material and specially designed worksheets that allow the child to verify what they have learned by observing.

Children through hands-on activities with materials familiar to them acquire knowledge in a fun way adapted to their age so that they come to love science and gain a positive attitude towards them in their later school life.

Purpose of the program

The purpose of the program is for children to get acquainted with simple concepts of physics, mathematics, engineering and technology. We also seek to cultivate skills such as observability, imagination and ingenuity.
