Young Builders Group is excited to offer e² Young Engineers® programs to the Queens and Long Island areas!
e² Young Engineers® enrichment programs adopt a rational edutainment (the combination of education and entertainment) approach. We have developed a variety of different programs that can be used to teach the most important subjects taught in schools today. Children joining our educational community can learn and enjoy the likes of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in a whole new way.
We have developed hands on special programs and workshops suited to children at both ends of the learning spectrum, from gifted children to those with learning disabilities. Unlike traditional teaching methods, our use of stories, experiments and demonstrations ensures that all children joining our enrichment programs will learn while they have fun. In fact, they’ll have so much fun they may not even realize they’re learning.
Our programs and workshops are completely unique, using LEGO® brick kits specially designed for the e² Young Engineers® community and lesson plans that are continually updated to ensure effectiveness.
These enrichment programs are as fun and exciting as they are educational, providing the right mix of “edutainment”, something we are proud to provide.
Statistical tests show a clear connection between participation in our e² Young Engineers programs and success at school as well as enhancing the child’s skills. We always seek to offer every child in the world the opportunity and confidence to enter a challenging society by providing an encouraging, hands-on environment which will develop the necessary skill sets they need to make a change in the world we live in today.
Why e² Young Engineers® ? :
Growing up I was fortunate enough to attend several types of enrichment programs that helped me excel in school and ultimately impacted my career. Those programs all followed the same model but didn’t have that niche to keep me wanting to learn more. When I was first introduced to the Young Engineers program I was blown away with how they used Lego building blocks to capture and keep children interested in learning about STEM. What’s even better is that children have fun and at the same time they learn a new skill set. In fact, I am learning more about technology and engineering at the age of 37 than I ever did when I was in school.

As a father of two I saw how other educational programs fell short of giving my kids an opportunity to excel in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Most program use a push-down approach where the teacher uses a predetermined curriculum of what society thinks children should learn from the teachers’ point of view. There’s something missing with this model. What I love about Young Engineers is that it is taught from the child’s perspective in a way that brings learning to life. The child builds and plays with their creations, all while learning something new about the world around them throughout the process. The world today is fast moving and it is up to us to give our kids the skills they need to not only keep up with the times, but excel through the times. What makes Young Engineers truly unique is the combination of education and entertainment together to form “Edutainment”.
