Bricks Landing Page


8 Week STEM After-School Program allows kids to step into the shoes
of an engineer!

• Using LEGO® bricks, build a different engineering-themed project in each class.
• Explore engineering fields including mechanical, structural,aerospace, nautical, 
   and bioengineering.
• Use critical thinking, cooperation, and creative problem-solving to test and
   improve creations.
• Experience extended learning with a take home toy to reinforce each concept.


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.

Reach for the sky! Find out how structural
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.

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.

Create a sea-worthy vessel as youset sail with nautical engineering! Build and test a boat powered bypotential and kinetic energy. Then try changing specific variables to improve speed, buoyancy, and stability.

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.

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

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.

Engineering is creative! Learn how
gears, levers, and pulleys are useful
tools for mechanical engineers then
combine them with art and design to
create and test a motorized
drawing machine.
