Description:

Kids already know how to build with LEGO® bricks, but with a little coaching they can learn engineering, architecture and concepts of physics and mathematics using the plastic components. Students will develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills through our hands-on classes. Students will design and build machines, catapults, pyramids, derby cards, buildings and other constructions out of LEGO® bricks. Students will work in a lab-type setting using LEGO® bricks with an integrated curriculum based on math and science including concepts of friction, gravity and torque, scale, gears, axles and beams. We foster an environment where kids play and socialize with friends while learning fundamentals of engineering and architecture in a noncompetitive setting, build problem-solving skills, provide an opportunity for creative expression, and nurture an appreciation of how things work, and to help students understand that Architectur e and Engineering are viable career choices.
