Winter/Spring Programs are based on using Lego's and exploring the following topics.
Aerospace: Launch your imagination to new heights as you explore aerospace engineering! Discover the secrets 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.
Thursday, January 13 I 5:30-6:30pm
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.
Thursday, January 27 I 5:30-6:30pm
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.
Thursday, February 10 I 5:30-6:30pm
Vehicles: Get in gear as an automotive engineer! Build a motorized vehicle and learn how to optimize it. Use wheels, axles and gears to reduce friction and make it work better. Then shift things into a higher gear to get a hands-on understanding of transmissions and gear ratios.
Thursday, March 3 I 5:30-6:30pm
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.
Thursday, March 17 I 5:30-6:30pm
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.
Thursday, April 7 I 5:30-6:30pm
