Junior Inventors

JC Ingenium

Encourage learning the fundamental concepts of circuits, coding, and critical thinking.

A stimulating STEM workshop focusing on learning the fundamental concepts of circuits, coding and critical thinking.  Children will be introduced to the realm of circuits and prototypes and the world of innovation.

Using Magblox Magnetic Tiles and littleBits students will play and experiment through active experiences, enabling them to construct knowledge that can be applied to real-life situations.

Children will be guided as they complete projects at their own pace suitable to their age and ability. The creations are scaffolded in order to encourage children of different ages to attempt different levels and challenge their expertise.

Children will also develop their team-building skills by working towards the common goal of building a project together.

Workshop Options

The Junior Inventors Program is a build up from the previous Magnetic Tiles – Junior Master Builders and it aims to provide the children with a wide range of products to test out which includes:

LittleBits
It’s a system of pieces and modular electrical components which connect with magnets from end to end, no glue or soldering is necessary.

By connecting the modules in unique and creative ways, children can build interesting, innovative electronic devices. There are three metal pins that allow electronic modules to work properly.

MAGBRIX®
These are magnetic tiles which allow children to connect and build up using Lego like bricks as well as other brick compatible components.

The tiles allow children to collaborate with other STEM devices while building up with standard magnetic tiles.

Facilitator Profile

JC Ingenium is a proud, Australian-owned family business. We are passionate about bringing play-based learning opportunities to the often challenging world of education. Our story started in 2016, when we created our first game, the well-known Playmager Blocks®, with the intention of supporting early childhood and primary age educational centres with the benefits of open-ended toys.

Our aim at JC Ingenium is to provide quality resources and educational materials, as well as innovative programs and incursions to complement the important work of teachers, parents and day-to-day caregivers. Our motto is “Learning through play” and this approach to learning in the early stages of life allows us to play a part in cultivating the educational foundation of the generations that will become the leaders of the future.
