The Airbus Little Engineer programme is the hugely successful result of the partnership between Airbus Middle East and The Little Engineer organization and over 4,000 students have taken part in the programme, which is operating in more than 12 countries from Morocco, KSA, India, Sri Lanka, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Kuwait, and Bahrain to Kenya and Nigeria. This programme has been running since 2012 and aims to inspire youth across the Middle East and Africa region to focus on STEM studies and pursue the dream to become the engineers and innovators of the future.

In the same way, The Little Engineer is dedicated to educating young minds and increasing public understanding and appreciation of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics through interactive tailored programs. Since its inception as a personal initiative, TLE has positioned itself as a scientific foundation enlightening and empowering youth in the areas of science and technologies with focus on Robotics, Renewable Energy and Environmental related sciences delivered in an easy yet very effective method with a concept of bridging the gap between theory and practice & schools and universities.
As a winner of MIT, Cartier Women Initiative & other international prizes, awards and recognitions, The Little Engineer is an initiative introduced to provide its students with a hands-on experience in selected scientific topics. The Little Engineer is therefore, positioned as a serious scientific foundation geared towards becoming a recognized pre-engineering school in the areas of Robotics & Renewable Energy Sciences. TLE focuses on educating young minds and trying to raise public awareness and appreciation of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics through interactive tailored programs which resulted in creating The Little Engineer Curriculum. The Little Engineer’s educational approach through Edutainment and Hand-on-Experience helps its students to a) unleash their scientific skills potential and b) meet the challenges of the future society – a future where innovation, originality, and the ability to work with others will be a key competitive feature
