Brixology: July 3 - 7 (Ages 7 to 12)

Kids will learn about different types of engineering and then team up to construct an engineering-themed project using Lego bricks. They will learn about aerospace engineering while assembling a space station. We will move on to explore mechanical engineering as we build boats and vehicles. That’s not all, from carnival rides to drawing machines, mechanical animals to truss bridges, your future engineer will build upon his/her creativity to solve real-world design challenges, while developing their problem-solving and team-building skills.
