Engineering FUN with LEGO 10a.m. - 1p.m., ages 7-11 (first graders with some experience may sign up), cost $150/student. Room 105
Did you hear about the LEGO Engineering class that Riverdale offered last Spring after school on Mondays? The company that ran it is Play-Well (www.play-well.org), and we're coming back to teach a summer camp! We will have all new projects and will add some green engineering into the mix (yes, we have LEGO solar panels that are true photovoltaics), capture the energy of the sun and go crazy with motors, while learning how the process works. This camp is appropriate for the LEGO maniacs who took the Spring class AND for new campers who love LEGO and/or math and science. As with the class, students will take on real-life engineering challenges that explore concepts in physics, architecture, mechanical and structural engineering with over 100,000 pieces of LEGO® material. From racecars to Battletracks, this is a hands-on and minds-on camp suitable for LEGO novices to "maniacs." Designed by engineers, the curriculum challenges both new and returning students to reach the next level of engineering comprehension, all while having fun.
