Booking Open for Autumn


Autumn Term Booking!

Welcome to the Autumn Booking Page.

New Classes

We have introduced two new classes:

  • Big Builders for Ages 3 & 4. This class will initially run at 3pm in Stockbridge. This is a 30 minute class aimed at children in nursery. It is based on our core Big Builders programme, however models are simpler and the focus is on building and on learning 2 or 3 facts about the item we are building.

  • Bricks Challenge for Ages 5 & 6. This class is aimed at Primary 2 children who are not yet ready for our standard Bricks Challenge class. Any child who has completed 25 or more Big Builders lessons can also join this class. The session is 1 hour with educational content aimed at Early Years Education.


After many requests we are delighted to be introducing classes in Dunfermline. We will run Big Builders on a Tuesday night at Carnegie Hall and then another Big Builders plus a Bricks Challenge at Carnegie Leisure Centre on a Sunday. Waiting lists are available for two additional Dunfermline classes:

Big Builders for 3 & 4 year olds: Waiting list open for Tuesdays 3pm to 3.30pm and Sundays 2pm to 2.30pm

Bricks Challenge for ages 7 to 9: Waiting list open for Tuesdays 4.45pm to 6pm.

Galileo Class Rollout!

After a successful trial term of Galileo aimed at 10 to 13 years olds we are rolling this class out to many of our other venues. Classes will now run in Broxburn, Stockbridge, Juniper Green, Cramond, Craiglockhart and Bathgate. More information on this programme is available here: Galileo Technic

New Booking System

Many of you experience booking issues last term and it became apparent that our previous system was not able to grow with the business. We have therefore moved to a new system which we believe will provide a better experience for all our customers.

All of your general data has been imported from the old system, however we cannot import the details about your children. When you come to make a booking with the new system you will be asked to enter details of your children again. Once completed you will have a drop down box to select the child you wish to book onto the course. The new system is far superior to the old in terms of managing a parent/child setup.

We are sure there will be something teething problems so please just contact us on edinburgh@young-engineers.co.uk  if you have any problems.
