Genius Workshop Regular – Engineering courses

Course Summary 

Course 1 – Engineering – Mechanic Workshop

Starting as a toddler, young children come across un-countable machines in life without understanding how they actually work. The conveyor belt at the airport, the turnstile at subway stations, the elevator that takes them up and down… all these movable objects might seem like magic to them.​

In the Mechanic Workshop, the young minds will not only see how things work, they will also get to create, and build these machines to make them move!

 

Course 2 – Engineering – Engineering Workshop

In this workshop, children will acquire and apply a large varieties of  engineering concepts in their LEGO creations.  Utilizing the abundant resources available at our workshop, they will be able to build and modify inspiring projects that serve creative and meaningful purposes.

Don’t underestimate the potential in children; sometimes even our instructors are fascinated by children’s creations!

 

Course 3 – Engineering – Architecture Unit

The relationships between structure, stability, and forces are the very reason why our buildings can stand still in storms.  However, architecture is not limited to buildings – it can also be towers, bridges, houses, or any structure that serves different purposes. 

Experiments will be done to test if hour architectural creations can stand through all the tests, just like a real architect.

 

Course 4 – Engineering – Green Zone

With the world’s resources running low, its effect on our next generation will be much greater than it has on us.  While alternative energy is inevitable, it is important for children to understand how energy works to sustain the world in the future.
