Welcome to e² Young Engineers Western Suburbs, Melbourne website!
We are so excited and privileged to be offering the e² Young Engineers (Young Engineers) programs to kids from Prep to year 6. We are here to help students in these areas.
We currently run after-school Young Engineers clubs, school holiday programs and custom workshops for special events for students aged 6 – 12. Our mission at Young Engineers Western Suburbs Melbourne is to give all our students a life-changing encounter with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to arrest a disturbing trend that many researchers are predicting.
Yes, many researchers are predicting a massive Australia-wide skills shortage in science-oriented fields in the not too distant future. At the same time, a worrying trend is starting to emerge in our primary schools – far too many students have already decided against a career in science by the time they leave primary school.
Our programs utilize an EDUTAINMENT (education + entertainment) approach, transforming the learning process into having FUN with the world’s favorite building block – LEGO®! Yes, science can be fun! When our students graduate, they would’ve had plenty of fun and learnt just as much. Just as importantly though, we hope we would’ve delivered them an insatiable and life-long passion for science and technology.
