At Young Engineers, our initiative has always been to establish an original and unparalleled approach to educating the engineers and scientists of tomorrow. We do this by creating engaging educational experiences that they can enjoy early on. Our various programs’ curricula provide students with the opportunity to overcome the challenges of the engineering and the scientific workforce and, as a result, they feel more confident and knowledgeable.
The Spiral Learning Method
Our Spiral Learning technique can be found in every single Young Engineers lesson, as well as in the curricula of each program. Beginning with basic building skills, engineering terms, sophisticated models, software programming, we are continually working to advance these lessons and skills.
Spiral Learning is in our core value system for how we educate. Each enrichment
programs’ curriculum always builds upon the lessons of the one before.
Problem-Based Learning, Product-Based Learning and Project-Based Learning
Problem-Based Learning: After the construction of a model, our Young Engineers teacher will ask the student to enhance their model in order to solve a given problem demonstrated in that lesson.
Product-Based Learning: Students build a product that demonstrates the scientific principles taught in that lesson.
Project-Based Learning: Through planning and executing a project from start to finish, students develop their team-building and presentation skills. In addition, they will improve their organizational and time management abilities.
