Using Lego® Bricks, critical thinking and cooperation, students build eight, different, one-of-a-kind, engineering-themed projects. Students will use and further develop creative problem solving skills to test and improve their builds, just like an Engineer. All classes will be lead by a Mad Scientist, enhanced with detailed building instruction manuals and are accompanied by a unique Mad Science® take-home project that is Lego® compatible. This program will be made up of the following 8 classes: Aerospace, Towers, Carnivals, Boats, Creatures, Bridges, Vehicles and Machines. See "Additional Information" to the right for details on each of the 8 classes.
Aerospace
Launch your imagination to new heights as you explore aerospace engineering! Discover the secrets of working in space – efficiency & compact design. Create a trussed space station module, then connect it with others to create a massive modular spacecraft.
Boats
Create a sea-worthy vessel as you set sail with nautical engineering! Build and test a boat powered by potential and kinetic energy. Then try changing specific variables to improve speed, buoyancy, and stability. Take Home: Wave Rider.
Bridges
How can you build the strongest bridge? Work together with your fellow civil engineers to build and test different bridge designs. Then use what you’ve learned to create the strongest bridge possible! Take Home: Truss Bridge
Carnivals
Feel the thrill as you build a spinning swing ride!Learn about the forces & mechanical engineering concepts behind some of your favorite amusement park rides.Improve & test designs to create an even wilder ride with classmates! Take Home:Viking Ship Ride
Creatures
Discover nature’s engineering secrets as we investigate biomimicry! Build a walking insect machine, then test different ways to help it climb up the steepest branch. Take Home: Wind Up Locomotive Peacock.
Machines
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. Take Home: Zipline Sky Roller.
Towers
Reach for the sky! Find out how structural engineers 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. Take Home: Sky Towers.
Vehicles
Be an automotive engineer!Build a motorized vehicle & learn how to optimize it.Use wheels,axles & gears to reduce friction & make work easier.Shift things into higher gear to get a hands-on understanding of transmissions & gear ratios.Take Home:Hovercraft
