LEGO Engineering:
What LEGO challenges do kids love? Our LEGO Engineering program includes STEM-based challenges and free-building. We will build mechanisms that incorporate gears, flywheels, and cams to build amazing contraptions. We will crank up the fun using creativity to build with LEGOs in problem solving challenges. Kids can design a spinning eggbeater or create a car to carry LEGO bricks.   Make it a full day! Merge LEGOs with machine power to create a power car, dragster, and dog bot!

Rocket Science:
Rocket Science ’22 features the all time favorite customizable E2X model rocket. As an aerospace engineer, you chose the final design as we journey to the moon. Keep a Captain’s Log as you investigate what’s inside the rocky planets and gas giants. Map distant constellations, create flittering moon rocks, and make galaxy slime as part of your out-of-this-world lunar journey. Blast off with a solid fuel high flying launch at the end of the week (weather permitting). Make it a full day! Stay a full day to terraform a Mars colony and investigate how NASA’s DART mission is learning to redirect asteroids in space!
Lego Robotics WEDO 2.0
Learn to program free roaming LEGO robots “and make science come to life” take out the next idea is more important and see science ideas grow from design to action. Get in gear with LEGO’s NBEW updated Ipad based software to build and program. Milo the Science Rover and other fun untethered robots. Apply robots to solve real world problems by creating an earthquake-shake table to test house designs, and a bot to sort and recycle items! Make it a full day! Design your own specialized bots that use sensors to explore an imaginary planet or create a safe wildlife crossing on earth.
