About This Activity

Instructor: Leaf Gears, levers, pulleys, wheels, and axles bring models to life! Projects can range from building a step-by-step merry-go-round to inventing a vehicle replacing Cinderella’s broken-down pumpkin coach on the way to the ball. The guided explorations and inventive applications are appropriate for both interested beginners and experienced LEGO fans. LEGO Technic Kits, simple machine sets of 200+ pieces, give every student the opportunity to explore areas of mechanical engineering through simple machines and structural experiments. Activities will focus on exploring, investigating, and problem solving. They will provide challenging transitions from two-dimensional pictures into three-dimensional models. Students will gain great hands-on experiences, boost trial-and-error confidence, and learn valuable lessons in compromising during partner work. Open-ended design challenges will capture your child’s imagination! Thousands of additional pieces from LEGO resource sets will spark new and experienced summer LEGO builders. The grand finale will bring simple machines to life! Your children, both girls and boys, will find this class energizing and entertaining as a favorite WCS Summer Explorations class! mleaf@wcsks.com
