We will continuously work with our franchisees to standardize operations, achieve a consistency in quality in all their centers. Our goal is make the youth of Libya passionate about science and unleash their scientific potential through software programming, robot building, and green engineering in a fun interactive environment,” said Mohamad Shihan CEO & Co-founder of The Little Engineer Int. “We aim to bridge the gap between theory and practice in specific Engineering topics.” Mohammad Shihan added.

TLE Libya is expected to start providing its educational services to the Libyan market by mid of October 2012 in the City of Benghazi. Additional centers are scheduled to open in Tripoli, the capital by first quarter of 2013 through selected sub-franchisees.

“We are excited about the practical  hands-on methods that our students will be using to learn about science. I was impressed when I saw the kids of the TLE centers in Lebanon. They were doing advanced science for their age and immensely enjoying their time. They were not stuck to reading theory from books that they will never practically use.  We see this as a great opportunity and gift to the youth of Libya, and it is something I wish I had when I was younger.” said Marie Billtaib Chairman of TLE-Libya

We want students to become passionate about science and not be forced into it.” Rana Shmeitilly founder of Little Engineer
