New Extra School Activity :

"Engineering for Kids"

          Fab Lab

INTRODUCTION:

 

True to its pioneering history, Le Cours du Rocher is the first primary school to install a FabLab on its premises in order to offer an innovative activity to children.

The FabLab du Rocher is a digital design and manufacturing workshop for children aged 5/7 and 8/10 years old.

It is equipped with 3D printers, a laser cutter, a digital embroiderer, and an electronic workshop.

Due to the positive impact of these activities on children, we believe that these FabLabs will become standard in primary school in the years to come.

Why this activity? Scientific studies have demonstrated the impact of the Makers projects, from elementary school, on the development of key cognitive skills for 21st century children:

 

Creativity - Attitude for problem solving - Critical Mind - Conceptual Thinking - Scientific Mind As well as behaviors: Collaboration - Autonomy - Resilience

Examples of Projects:

Each project develops on 5 sessions of 1h30.

 

Note : For individual projects, each child brings their individual creation home.

Description :

The FabLab du Rocher offers a course of initiation to engineering workshops to arouse curiosity, creativity and patience for problem solving.

The “Engineering for Kids” workshops are led by Kuti Kuti trainers experienced in teaching children.

Engineering for Kids allows you to develop an ease with technologies, as well as skills in 2D, 3D design and in the use of FabLab digital machines.

When necessary for a project, notions of mathematics will be approached (perimeters, surface, angles ...) in a practical way, giving meaning to school learning.

"Engineering for Kids" is offered in French or English.
