Info

Aerospace
Launch your imagination to new heights as you explore aerospace engineering, through efficiency and compact, modular design. Create a trussed space station module, and then connect it with others to create a massive modular spacecraft.

Boats
Children create a sea-worthy vessel as they set sail with nautical engineering! Then they try changing specific variables to improve speed, buoyancy, and stability.

Bridges
In this class, children work together with their fellow civil engineers to build and test different bridge designs. They learn about strong shapes and structures, and use what they learn to create the strongest bridge possible.

Creatures
Children discover nature s engineering secrets as they investigate biomimicry and biomechanics! Children build a walking insect machine then test different ways to help it climb up the steepest incline.

Towers
Find out how structural engineers use ideas from physics to solve construction problems. Children collaborate and build a structurally sound tower with a working elevator made with LEGO bricks.

Vehicles
Children Build a motorized vehicle and learn how to optimize it. They use gears, wheels and axles to reduce frictions and make work easier. Then they shift things into a higher gear to get a hands-on understanding of transmissions and gear rations.
