Program Information:

CURRICULUM/INSTRUCTIONAL CONTENT: • Students will work in a lab-type setting using LEGO® components such as gears, axles and beams. • Instructional content is multi-disciplinary and designed by educators to increase student's general knowledge and introduce S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts related to the day's model. • Lessons are designed around students' interests, with themes like animals, space, transportation and sports. • 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 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 about engineering, architecture, physics and math using specialized components. • When lessons are related to something kids enjoy, like building with LEGO® bricks, kids are more motivated and retain more of what they learn. • Working with a partner fosters teamwork and cooperation. • Completing a new challenge each week builds self-esteem. DURATION/FREQUENCY/COST: • The program runs throughout the school year and follows the school calendar. • Classes meet 1 hour per week for 4 - 12 weeks. • Each session is competitively priced per student. • Students may join in at the beginning of each session.
