All Ages

Our budding engineers are introduced to the YEW framework for socialized project based learning, adjusted for their age and span of attention.

We do semi-structured play activities that provide opportunities for learning hard and soft skills, as well as concepts from science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Students learn to identify and safely use basic tools, follow written and verbal instructions, work with technical diagrams and solve simple problems individually and with others.

They learn the basics of mechanics and structures using equipment like Lego, K’nex, Meccano and Erector, cardboard and wood. Activities may include playing with pre-built robots, building simple circuits and doing logo turtle programming. We incorporate the spirit of excellence through light-hearted competition and a whole lot of fun. Students who have been prepared by our starter program have priority access to our advanced programs.

Age: 5-8 years old.
Room 20, Shelly Park Primary
$219 for 9 week term (excludes Labour Day)
