1 Week Half-day Camp Featuring LEGO® Bricks

 

Day 1 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 space station and connect it with others to assemble a massive modular spacecraft.

ENGINEERING CHALLENGE
Work with your fellow crewmembers to build a habitat that is safe for human life on Mars, using modular building blocks.

 

Day 2 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.

ENGINEERING CHALLENGE
Make the waterways safe for swimmers and boaters by building and testing a buoy line. 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.

 

Day 3 Bridges

How can you build the strongest bridge? Work together with your fellow civil engineers to build and test different bridge designs. Then use what you’ve learned to create the strongest bridge possible.

ENGINEERING CHALLENGE
Create a structure using string that can hold up the weight of a person. Then put on your hard hat and redesign it to create a suspension bridge.

 

Day 4 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.

ENGINEERING CHALLENGE
Work with your teammates to develop your own carnival game and then use what you’ve learned to build it.

 

Day 5 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.

ENGINEERING CHALLENGE
Use ball and socket joints to build a crazy creature with your group.
