About Us
Today, The Little Engineer has become education institution with both business to business and business to client channels. The emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics is conveyed by specially tailored hands-on learning activities that allow kids and teens to unleash their full potential in pre-engineering skills while focusing on robotics, coding, renewable energies, aviation, automotive and space industries, Internet of things, Artificial intelligence, 3D modeling and much more. Currently we are collaborating with ministries of education in the MENA region, Africa and the USA in hopes of bridging the gap between theory and practice & schools and universities. By doing so we are allowing for a new generation of engineers that are not only ready for the labor market, but are passionate enough to give back to the wounded world.
Mission

We aim to invest in young minds and enable them to unleash their full potential in STEM concepts, through proven hands-on/minds on learning workshops and courses. We aspire to bridge the gap between theory and practice, between schools and universities. Moreover, we strive to cultivate today's talents and mold them into future pioneers to be ready for the forth industrial revolution.

Vision

The Little Engineer is expanding locally, regionally and globally to become among the leaders in delivering products, services and class solutions for schools in the STEM field, while exposing the largest number of kids, teens and educators to the latest innovations and technological tools needed to excel in this broad field.

HISTORY

Rana Shmaitelly, instructor in the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture at the American University of Beirut, teaching in the Mechanical and Engineering Management Department, a mother of three kids decided to launch the Little Engineer venture in Beirut, with the aim to protect her 3 kids and the future generation, from being addicted to the TV, Internet, Electronic games (PSP, Nintendo, Wii….) 

"I believe that I can at least distract my kids for few hours in the week, away from electronic games, entertaining them with some educational and environmental activities, to prepare them to meet the challenges of the future. Today they can be students in the center, few years from now, in their teenage years , they will join The Little Engineer as facilitators for younger students. Nothing to lose as far as I have the will, the funds, the leadership and the initiative to convert the dream to reality, and I always say "When there is a will there is a way".

Let us give the Lebanese Kids and Teens the chance to express themselves, show their hidden skills and compete with others in worldwide competitions.

 The Little Engineer concept was conceived March 2009, and was tested in July 2009 by launching a summer activity, a six week program. Kids enrolling in one of our programs were visiting us once per week, for 3 hours each time for six weeks.

It is truly our pleasure to enhance the child's awareness of new technologies and encourage the creative growth in exploring the various possibilities offered by the engineering field. Today, The Little Engineer provides Summer and after-school activities that supplement the traditional learning environment. It offers an open space where children can have fun while building skills like creativity and problem solving – skills that are not necessarily addressed in the classroom. The Little Engineer guarantees a friendly atmosphere with qualified staff catering to small groups of children who work and play together at their own pace.
