The importance of learning Engineering at a young age
Learning engineering allows children to apply their existing mathematical and scientific knowledge in a more practical way. Children also learn how to question and elaborate answers to common problems they may encounter. Learning engineering at a young age also helps children to learn how to see the real-life word from a different perspective. Engineering would definitely help children to interact with mathematics and science in a more meaningful manner that children would find easier to relate in their day to day lives.
Engineering supports children to consistently develop and improve their mathematical and scientific skills. For instance, children move away from the textbooks to solve equations, calculate rotations and gradients when developing their own projects. Likewise, children make use of the existing scientific knowledge to plan new projects. Children learn about the natural world of science when working on civil engineering projects or they might learn about the physics behind pulleys, boring tunnels and many other activities.
Extra-curricular impact: the development of skills for life
Parents normally enrol their children in this course for two reasons. Primarily parents want their children to realise that mathematics and science can be used and applied in real-life situations, well beyond the school textbooks. The second reason is to get children to develop problem-solving skills, teamwork and resilience.
The emphasis is on fun, yet we inspire learning about concepts through dialogue and questioning.
In this course, children will:
Learn and consolidate fundamental principles of engineering
Apply existing mathematical knowledge within a given context
Understand how engineering works and its influence in modern life
Work on practical activities such as working on their own projects
Develop problem-solving skills, teamwork and resilience
