CURRICULUM & INSTRUCTIONAL CONTENT
Students will work in a lab-type setting using LEGO® bricks with an integrated curriculum based on maths and science.
Instructional content includes concepts of friction, gravity and torque, scale, gears, axles and beams.
The material covered in each session will vary depending on students’ ages, experience, and skill level.
All material will be provided.
GOALS
For children to play and socialise with friends while learning fundamentals of engineering and architecture in a non-competitive setting.
To build problem-solving skills, provide an opportunity for creative expression and foster an appreciation of how things work.
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.
The children take home a handout each week to show parents what they’ve learned. As well as building very cool motorised models step by step and playing with a huge amount of LEGO® for creative free play building.
Each child builds their own LEGO® mini-figure to play with each week and take home on the last week, which they LOVE !!
*Star Wars Camp* – Christmas Camps are fully booked so we have added a NEW DATE on Wednesday 3rd January – Galaxy Far Away Camp, £18 from 9.30am – 12.30pm
