Engineering for kids. Really? It got me curious. I was then told to bring my kids ad they might enjoy this. I googled it and what I saw was something different. I was excited to be honest and so I went with an open mind.
What I saw heard and experienced was something out of the ordinary. It was very interesting. The materials that they used are those in our household – nothing so out of this world – but the basic stuff. It’s simply making science applicable to daily life, simple enough for the kids to enjoy and at the same time learn from. I wish we had this during my time. I am very much fascinated with Chemistry in HS but was discouraged because there was not application involved. What I learned in school – I only did in school – there was no practical application. I am so glad for the kids now because they have means to develop their interests early on. Whats more is that parents support their kids decision now – parents value what their kids like and give them the opportunity to hone those interests and talents. Here are a couple of videos to pique your interest:
Interesting right? Very!! Engineering for Kids make science very interesting and practical. They don’t teach you the theories (well the do of course, but not that intense like reading so many paragraphs etc.) but emphasize on problem based solving via learning and play. It’s very interesting because kids learn through exploration and discovery. They have practical material found nearly everywhere (especially the house!) Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics is what makes up Engineering for Kids. S.T.E.M. encourages creativity and innovation through play and learning. Don’t you wish you had this? So, for those who have kids that are science inclined – you have an outlet now! Engineering for Kids!! Engineering for kids has ten (10) programs:
Electronic Game Design
There are two levels for each category. They classify it by age – one group is called JUNIOR Engineers – they’re aged 4-6, the other group is called APPRENTICE/MATER Engineers – they’re aged 7-14. We got a glimpse of what Engineering for Kids had to offer and we had so much fun! Kailee was nonstop playing with the slime, courtesy of the Chemical Engineering booth. Connor was so enjoying Marine Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. See the videos above. I honestly never thought they’d enjoy it. But Engineering for Kids definitely made it interesting! The good news is – I will be giving away two (2) FREE TRIAL coupons!! Just leave the following details on the comment section: a) Name b) Email Address (make sure this is a valid one that you open often!!) c) Which of the 10 programs do you think your child will enjoy most and why. d) Send out a Tweet with a link back to this giveaway or share this on FB (please leave the URL) I will be picking the winners so it will be my prerogative and decision. This is open to Metro Manila residents who are able to pick-up the coupon in Quezon City (please don’t force me to *ship*) This giveaway will end on April 30, 2015!
