Students participating in e² Young Engineers’ Galileo Technic advanced enrichment program will get hands on experience that will prepare them for their future the working in 21st century. Participants will be taught to use expert level engineering thinking, using math and physics to solve problems and build efficient machines. Using that professional engineering perspective students will learn to focus on identifying appropriate solutions for a given problem. In addition they will work in groups, promoting team building to construct complex mechanisms.

Galileo Technic provides an advanced level of thematic study, implementing mechanical engineering principles through building LEGO® bricks models. By analyzing physical, mathematical and technical aspects of a machine’s operation, students will implement the most efficient method for building their machine. Students study a certain topic; explore it from different angles and contexts while integrating the core processes frequently applied by engineers. Participants will graduate the Galileo Technic program with amazing newly learned skills in Science, Technology, Mechanical Engineering, and Math (STEM) subjects.

Overview of Galileo Technic curriculum

Galileo Technic curriculum builds upon the curriculum of Bricks Challenge. In addition to more advanced lessons of the introductory level math, physics and engineering of Bricks Challenge, Galileo Technic participants will be introduced to new engineering terms and principles.
Galileo Technic teaches engineering mechanisms such as: multi-channel transmission systems, mechanical coordination, the movement of a body on a rotational axis, center of gravity and fulcrum, different ratchet implementations, energy depletion, recycling, limited transmission belt implementations and more. Students build upon the math they learned in Bricks Challenge and will also learn principles of statics, understanding probability and chance.
Please see Bricks Challenge page for details of introductory curriculum taught in that program.
