TLE AUB-CEC 4 days STEM camp during summer 2015
Inspiring young minds about latest technologies
“I thought that I will be sending my children to a 4-day summer school when I decided to register them in The Little Engineer AUB-CEC Summer program t, but seeing my children repeating what they’ve applied during their scientific day, laughing when they remembered some funny obstacles they’ve faced when trying new hand-sciences, and constantly speaking their minds about what will tomorrow’s Little Engineer day be like has made me realize that those 4 days that my children have experienced had a clear homogenous mixture between education and fun; Edufun!”, one of the enrolled member’s mom said .
TLE Founder’s voice
Today, it’s not easy to find an environment or an object that a child can stick to and keep on thinking about other than technological devices and equipment. So why not to play it smart! The little Engineer AUB-CEC Summer program, has done so by putting technology into science, science into fun, fun into education, and as a result technology to education! Because schools teach our children theories and equations, during our summer program in collaboration with AUB-CEC, The Little Engineer’s decided to revert the equation by putting those scientific theories into practice, clearing the hypothesis of those theories, and involving learners in all hands-on experiments!
“Miss Arwa, how is it time to go home? It’s still early! It’s still 5:00!!” students claimed after a long day almost 7-hours.
Being the student’s instructor during this event, I have enjoyed my summer to the maximum because of the fact that the sociably enjoyable scientific environment that this workshop has put my students into has made me look to life from a very different perspective; seeing that every child may have a resulting outcome of a young scientist when his/her mind is triggered to think healthily and carefully experiment theories that he/she has always heard about but never seen by naked eye or touched by sole hands until they came to TLE .
New Dawn, New Mindset
Constructing a windmill to harness the power of Wind, understanding what is behind the photovoltaic cells and how to capture the power of the sun is by itself and enjoyable learning experience while using PV cells to build a Solar car from recyclables is another challenging tasks, going into gears, gear ratio to speed the car is the most inspiring part of the day. In Robotics sessions, it was impressive as well, to use motors and sensors to program a Robot. Students have absolutely enjoyed those new acquired skills during each of the weekly 4-days stay with us. Besides the science that the student’s minds have touched, it was wonderful how they made new friends, enjoyed their daily AUB lunch break, and toured the AUB with a brief introduction to some majors they may later think about. The Little Engineer AUB-CEC summer program? A life opportunity that every student wishes to experience, every parent is searching for, and every mind cherishes. We promise to surprise you more with our next workshop that is coming very soon! So will you gift your child an Edu-fun weekend as a break of school?VIEW GALLERY
