Extramural educational weekly sessions to make children excited and interested in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)
4 December 2017 – CENTURION, SOUTH AFRICA – e² Young Engineers, a company that provides a simple learning solution for complex educational subjects in Science, Technology, Mechanical Engineering, Software Engineering and Mathematics, is excited to announce the opening of a new learning centre.
Opening in Doringkloof Mall in Centurion (Pretoria), the learning centre is aimed at children ages 4 – 14.
Neuroscientists studies shows that our minds absorb new information through sensory integration. Feelings and sensations are critical in our thinking patterns and feelings draw our attention and give meaning to our memories which are based on pleasant or unpleasant experiences. Complex thinking processes are encouraged by challenges and discouraged by negative emotions, such as fear and pressure. e² Young Engineers’ approach provides a fun and interactive learning experience, installing positive memories and ensuring a positive connection is made with learning.
In addition to educational benefits the e² Young Engineers programmes also contribute to Early Childhood Development.
