**Young E****ngineers – Seattle East Side Programs**

**Bricks Challenge**** **

** **The Bricks Challenge program introduces elementary school children (ages 6-10) to the basic principles of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). 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.

**Ages: 6-9 (1st – 4th grade)**

**Average lesson duration: 60 minutes**

**Program Subjects Include**** **

**Basic and complex mathematics:** Instructors teach basic math, from addition and subtraction to exponents

**Famous scientific and philosophical figures:** Archimedes, Sir Isaac Newton, Einstein, 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.

**Galileo Technic **

The Galileo Technic program investigates mechanical systems from a real engineer’s point of view. The program focuses on finding solutions using teamwork in order to build complex machines. Children will explore the mechanical, mathematical and physical aspects of machinery and the logical process that goes into building them.

**Ages 8-11**

**Average lesson duration: 60 minutes**

**Program Subjects Include**

Seattle Eastside Young Engineers offers the Galileo Technic program for more advanced students as a part of the Bricks Challenge Program.

**RoboBricks**

This enrichment program teaches practical software and mechanical engineering principles such as: algorithm planning, formulation of pseudo code, flow charts, We-Do Programming, input and output implementations, loops, multi-threads, keyboard operations, sensor applications, calculation commands etc.

**Ages 8-11**

**Average lesson duration: 90 minutes**

**Program Subjects Include**

**Basic and complex mathematics****Basic Programming concepts as described above**

**Statistical Overview**

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

It has also been proven that elementary school students who join Young Engineers community obtain the mathematical knowledge required to succeed when tackling the more complex scientific curricula taught at middle and high schools.
