Tutor-Child Ratio: 1:8 (strictly minimum 3 children, maximum 8 children).

We will offer you an alternative course if the course is fully booked or if the course does not open.

Resources for the session: Children will need to have access to stationery, including pens or pencils and paper.

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.

Academic impact: 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.

About this course: This virtual Sunday course has been designed for children to enjoy, have fun and learn. Our virtual summer classes are small to enable tutors and children greater scope for interaction, dialogue, questions and answers. We motivate children to develop their engineering and mathematical skills while having fun. We also stimulate children to be creative. We teach children to learn how to identify a problem and look for a solution. We foster the development of resilience. Sometimes, some children tend to give up easily. We teach children that they need to try for alternate solutions to a given problem.

What we teach: Learn and consolidate fundamental mathematical principles and how mathematics also relates to real-life situations. We explore civil engineering, mechanical, engineering, railway engineering, structural engineering and other fields within engineering and its application in our day to day lives. We also motivate children to develop problem-solving skills, teamwork and resilience.

Topics include: Building with Bricks, Water Power, Electromagnet Engineering, Sound Engineering,  Ecosystems and Energy Flow, Engineering Railways, Engineering Defences, Splendid Soil, Drawing and Surveying, Islands and Coasts, Engineering Rockets, Greener Energy, Mighty Materials, Engineering Ancient Greece, Automotive Engineering, Rolling Coasters, Timber Structures, Aeronautics, Rubbish and Recycling, Engineering Polymers.

Differentiation: At Richer Education, we understand that ‘one size does not fit all‘. Therefore, our tutors and mentors differentiate the content of our sessions. We ensure that all children, regardless of their level of knowledge, are engaged at the appropriate level and pace.
