Description

•Build a different LEGO™ project, inspired by an
engineering theme, in each class.

•Explore engineering fields including mechanical,
structural, aerospace, nautical, and bioengineering.

•Use critical thinking, cooperation, and creative
problem-solving to test and improve creations.

•Experience extended learning with a take
home toy to reinforce each concept.

Additional Information

Bridges
How can you build the strongest bridge? Work together with your fellow civil engineers to build and test different bridge designs. Then use what you’ve learned to create the strongest bridge possible!
Carnivals
Feel the thrill as you build a spinning swing ride! Learn about the forces and mechanical engineering concepts behind some of your favorite amusement park rides. Then improve and test the design to create an even wilder ride!
Creatures
Discover nature’s engineering secrets as we investigate biomimicry! We can learn a lot about efficient design from observing plants and animals. Build a walking insect machine, then test different ways to help it climb up the steepest branch.
Machines
Engineering is creative! Learn how gears, levers, and pulleys are useful tools for mechanical engineers, then combine them with art and design to create and test a motorized drawing machine.
Towers
Reach for the sky! Find out how structural engineers use ideas from physics to solve problems. Work together to build a structurally sound tower with a working elevator, then test and improve your design for strength and stability.
Vehicles
Get in gear as an automotive engineer! Build a motorized vehicle and learn how to optimize it. Use wheels, axles and gears to reduce friction and make work easier. Then shift things into a higher gear to get a hands-on understanding of transmissions and g
