iEngineer

The program nurtures your kid into a building engineer. iEngineer module allows kids to demonstrate real-world mechanical models and it provides hands-on learning experience to explore the world of mechanical machine based on simple power machine.

Simple machines are devices with few or no moving parts that make work easier. They are designed to multiply or reduce force, increase or decrease speed and convert one type of motion to another. Students are introduced to the six types of simple machines - the wedge, wheel & axle, lever, inclined plane, screw and pulley. In addition to that kids will explore the power machines. In the activity time kids will gain high-level tools knowledge that have been used since ancient times and are still in use today.

In this module kids will do the experiment on simple machines as well as power machines and test the working and ability to do the task. By working on mechanical machine models, kids will start thinking out of the box and it will enhance the observation power by connecting day-to-day life examples like a crane, wheel & axle, car, Pulley and many more.

Simple machine model which is based on pulley, gears, speed, motion and many more, is the key to the mechanical engineering, and the conceptual knowledge of simple machine is one of the pioneer base of logical thinking. By working on simple machine, kids will experience the challenges which are faced by our highly qualified engineers and after the observation and analysis of the problem, they will develop the problem solving skill by learning through the errors.

The modern world is rich with examples of complex machines whose working is seldom understood. Students commonly use the word 'Machine' to describe complex mechanical devices powered by an engine or electric motor and designed to perform useful labor saving tasks. Students often believe that all machines produce much more work than their human operators put in. This view consistent with their experiences of most powered mechanical devices. For instance, chainsaws, electric power tools and hydraulic excavators.

Student's everyday experiences seldom acknowledge devices like levers, inclined planes, wedges and pulleys as being types of 'Simple machines'.
