Programs & Events

DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM

  • This is a hands-on class, focused on a STEM based curriculum, 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 model each class. 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

CURRICULUM & INSTRUCTIONAL CONTENT

  • Students will work in a lab-type setting using LEGO® bricks with an integrated curriculum based on math and science.

  • Instructional content includes concepts of friction, gravity and torque, scale, gears, axles and beams.

  • The material covered each session will vary depending on students’ ages, experience, and skill level.

  • All materials will be provided.

GOALS

  • For children to play and socialize with friends while learning fundamentals of engineering and architecture in a noncompetitive setting. 

  • To build problem-solving skills, provide an opportunity for creative expression and foster an appreciation of how things work.

  • Introduce engineering and architecture principles

  • Explore math and science concepts

  • Increase general knowledge through discussions related to each model

  • Develop social/emotional skills such as patience, teamwork and communication in the process of completing a project

  • Enhance self-esteem by solving problems and completing projects

  • Improve fine-motor skills as children manipulate small components

  • Utilize multiple learning modalities to engage visual, kinesthetic and auditory learning styles

  • Teach important classroom skills such as organization and following directions

  • To help students understand that Architecture and Engineering are viable career choices.  

BENEFITS 

  • 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. 

We learn, we build, we play with LEGO® Bricks
