DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM
* This is a hands-on program where students will design and build machines, catapults, pyramids, derby cars, buildings and other constructions out of Lego® bricks. While exploring engineering, architecture and physics, students will develop problem solving and critical thinking skills.
* Participants build a new project each class or workshop. Architectural concepts are taught while assembling buildings, bridges and other structures.
* Once the project is completed, children use the rest of their time to expand their gadgets and collaborate with one another.
* Designed and created by teachers, architects and engineering professionals, our hands-on curriculum introduces children age 3–13+ to concepts of engineering, architecture and mechanics using LEGO® bricks. Lessons from math, science, language arts, and social studies are integrated and discussed. Themes include Transportation, Space, Inventions, Stop Motion Movie Making, Robotics and more. Problem solving, teamwork, and self esteem are emphasized.
Unique and fun Camps, Classes, and Birthday parties are also available for children ages 3-13+!
