Description

In this new and exciting program, children will build a different LEGO® project each week, developed by LEGO® Certified Professional. They will explore mechanical engineering as they build boats and vehicles. The thrill of aerospace engineering will come alive as they assemble a space station. And that’s not all – from carnival rides to drawing machines, mechanical animals to truss bridges, your future engineer will build upon their creativity through fun and hands-on design challenges. Let the tinkering begin!

Additional Information

Aerospace
Launch your imagination to new heights as you explore aerospace engineering! Discover the secret of working in space – efficiency and compact design. Create a trussed space station module, then connect it with others to create a massive modular spacecraft
Boats
Create a sea-worthy vessel as you set sail with nautical engineering! Build and test a boat powered by potential and kinetic energy. Then try changing specific variables to improve speed, buoyancy, and stability.
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 by using wheels, axles and gears to reduce friction. Shift things into a high gear to get a hands-on understanding of transmissions and gear ratios.
