Lego Engineering

Ages: 6-9

Introduce your young student to the wonderful world of robotics and engineering with the creative LEGO® system. Students will build several different models that feature working motors and sensors.

What will your child learn in LEGO Engineering?

  • They will learn to program their models.
  • They will learn about simple machines like gears, pulleys, levers and inclined planes.
  • They will learn to measure, estimate and make educated guesses.
  • They will test their conjectures and form new ideas – the key to the engineering process – build,test and revise.
Our expert teachers will guide students through each build and help them test their creations.  Once the build is complete, our teachers will present new challenges to the team where they will have to develop a solution.  Students will work in teams of two.

Class will meet once a week for an hour and a half and each class will be limited to 10 students (5:1 student to teacher ratio). If students miss a class there are no makeups.

Engineering 1: This is a perfect starter class for students that have never experienced working with LEGO WeDo kits.  Students will learn the basic of programming and how to use the sensors to make their models perform different tasks.  12 week class.  Three installments of $138.

Engineering 2: Students will continue to explore engineering and programming with all new, larger models to build.  This camp will continue to challenge students with creative, problem-solving challenges.  Previous experience with the LEGO WeDo kits is preferred, from either Math Monkey’s Engineering 1 camp or another source.  12 week class.  Three installments of $138.
