My fun, highly stimulating lunchtime engineering club is offered as a 30 minute session on a termly basis generally for KS1 and KS2 children.
My sessions are all about empowering young children to explore and discover engineering habits of mind through hands-on practical activities whilst creating a link between their school learning and the engineered world around us.
Each session is designed to provide children with the opportunity to engage in fun, practical learning in an informal but structured environment to further develop imaginative, creative and problem solving skills. As all of the sessions include hands-on activities this provides children with an excellent opportunity to further develop hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, fuel their self-belief and communication skills.
Each week the session has a theme varying from construction challenges, STEM Lego challenges, magnetic shapes, real world challenges, and so much more.
All my activities are aimed at providing children with an early introduction into the engineering ways of thinking through experiment, trial & error, reflection and ‘try again’ to further develop their imaginative and creative problem-solving skills whilst having fun too.
