Engineering using LEGO/K’NEX
Ages 7 – 9 Saturdays, 11:30 – 12:30 pmimages-1
Combines your child’s love of LEGO Blocks & KNEX while learning “Executive Thinking Skills” that are critical in every child’s life. We will build on: reading directions, diagrams and schematics; identifying parts; project planning; organizing components; and cooperative play. Mr. Mack will introduce kids to the exciting world of LEGO machines, where each student will begin to understand how simple machines, structures, and mechanisms combine with the concepts of balance, friction, measure distance, time, speed, and weight. Wind, electrical, and kinetic energy sources will also be used in written lab experiments. Lots of fun for a budding scientist!
