Unit Overview

The Wee Engineer curriculum provides everything you need to engage your youngest learners in STEM.

The program includes 4 unique design challenges that can be taught in any order and follow a consistent structure that builds student confidence and mastery. Each challenge relates to common centers and themes and encourages children to us familiar materials to figure out how to make something that solves a specific problem. 

  • Noisemakers: Children create a loud noisemaker for a surprise party.
  • Fans: Children create a fan that can produce enough wind to move a ball.
  • Wrecking Balls: Children create a wrecking ball that can knock over a stack of blocks.
  • Rafts: Children create a raft that can support the weight of a toy.

Core Program Unit Components

We recommend one Educator Guide per teacher and one Materials Kit per 20 learners. Together, these components create a high-quality, hands-on STEM learning experience.
