Awesome Engineers Ltd run workshops and centres, encouraging children and adults to get excited about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths through building working LEGO® models. We build models such as the one pictured right and encourage children to explore such questions as, what makes it stand up? Is there better way of building this structure? How can we make it look cool? These questions help develop independent thought and creativity whilst having fun!
Our mission is to stimulate and support greater engagement and understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics skills through inspiring and creative model making programmes. We seek to be a socially aware business, both in the way we employ people and how we relate to the communities around our centres. Take a look at the ‘Why Awesome Engineers’ page to learn more of our vision for Awesome Engineers.
Links and Charities
As a social enterprise, we support children’s charities relevant to the business. Currently we are working with Fairy Bricks, a charity which provides LEGO® sets to hospices and hospitals around the UK.
For the past year we have been operating Awesome Engineers Centres in several parts of the country. These centres’ mission is to provide an engaging and fun curriculum that helps children (aged 6 to 11) engage with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Our worksheets have been designed to work in tandem with the Primary National Curriculum to provide essential skills that will help the children in school. The centres are run by dedicated instructors who have lots of experience in the teaching and engineering industry, as well as lots of experience playing with Lego!
