Teaching basic architecture, engineering, and city planning using LEGO to children 6-12 years. A Cool Play Station for Basic Architecture, Engineering, and City Planning Using LEGO
Club KE101 program is prepared with many topics to ignite as many avenues as possible to new information and interests, thus giving your child a sneak peak to many future careers. The main resource of our program is Irene’s professional experience, research and development. Our program is supported by professionals from various disciplines of the industry. Guest Speakers present their expertise, our students gobble it up! Club KE101 uses LEGO’s and beyond. The material we use for each camp depends on the curriculum.
The method of teaching is designed to match the age level of the group. Read further to get more information on how we deliver the subjects of Architecture, Engineering and Project Management to our students.
- Shape and number recognition concepts are built in every project so that children learn basic math and geometry
- Each project has a real-world connection to the everyday life children see and experience
- Each project stresses out the importance of math and science
- Each project stretches children’s abstract reasoning abilities
- Each project challenges children in creativity, self-expression, analytic thinking and problem solving
- City Planning: The kids will build their own city and have discussions about how a city is built, and why we have to follow city rules. Through team work, the kids will create their own city rules for their own city, making them positive contributors to a society!
- Architecture: The kids will have discussions about how buildings are designed and learn about the design approval process. They will build their own structures, combining math, geometry, and creativity.
- Engineering: The kids will have discussions about mechanical parts, the purpose of wheels, axles, pulleys, nuts and bolts, while they build their own cars and structures. Behind the scenes of pretend play with fighting dinosaurs, robots, and flying car machines, they will design their own structures applying arts and physics!
