Dear Parents,

As a mother of three I was always searching for activities that would satisfy my elder son’s insatiable desire to build with LEGO®. When I couldn’t find any activities in our local area that fit, I decided to create my own LEGO classes for him and his friends. The younger ones soon joined in and Mini-Engineers was born!

Why Mini-Engineers? While I am not an engineer myself, my father, through his hard work and determination, became an electrical/mechanical engineer for a Fortune Global 500 company. He taught me basic engineering principles throughout my childhood. I have been able to apply these to my studies at Cornell University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), my career in investment banking, now Mini-Engineers and not to mention in raising my three children. Throughout my life, I have met many engineers in various fields and developed a huge respect for the wonders they bring to life all around us. We definitely need more of them!

As my father did for me, Mini-Engineers aims to inspire your children by teaching them basic engineering principles that will serve as an important foundation for the rest of their lives.

We hope to see you in our Mini-Engineers iLab soon!



Mini-Engineers activities have been designed
with LEGO Education’s 4C Principles in mind


    Dorian’s interest in science began when he was very young and his uncle took him on the first of many visits to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston TX.  In high school Dorian helped found a robotics team to compete in international competitions before going on to study Computer Science at the University of Cambridge.  The only thing Dorian likes more than studying science is teaching it to kids.  His favourite LEGO model is R2D2.
    Life long love of model building whether plastic, wood or LEGO. Rufus contributes to new ideas and activities at Mini-Engineers and is also involved in design. Be on the look out for his new and exciting activities as we grow.
