Calling young Lego builders! We know you love the bricks just as much as we do! Here’s your chance to learn some basic engineering concepts that many adults have yet to master!
Using Lego Education’s brand new Simple Machines set, we’ll learn the mechanical engineering concepts behind levers, gears, pulleys and more. Each week, we’ll build a new project incorporating one of these. Get ready for a wild amusement park ride, a go-cart and of course … a catapult! This is a great way to master the building skills that will serve your young engineers well in our Lego Robotics and Robo Challenge classes for older kids.
After our kids use their Lego engineering skills to build simple machines, we encourage them to improvise on their designs, just like we do in our robotics classes!
Tired of having no clue what your kids do in all those clubs? The Great Adventure Lab is different! A day or two after every class, your engineering instructor will email a note explaining what your young engineer learned in the previous session and what’s next. Sometimes we even include photos and videos! The Great Adventure Lab is not affiliated, sponsored, or endorsed by LEGO® Education or the LEGO® Group.
