STEM + Harry Potter Magical Engineering with LEGO® Materials: FULL DAY

Prepare for a full-day LEGO camp packed with hands-on and minds-on STEM fun! Build projects inspired by cool machines close to home, such as Trains, Helicopters, Treehouses, and Beam Bridges. Then find Platform 9 3/4, build Hogwarts Express Train, and challenge the Hungarian Horntail Dragon! Engineering and Wizardry are the focus of this new full-day themed camp for LEGO fanatics!

We typically work on 2 different engineering and architectural projects per day. Projects typically start with an introduction and short presentation by the instructor followed by a design/building assignment. Students have access to approximately 100,000 pieces of LEGO® materials to use in creating their engineering projects.

Students are introduced to engineering terminology that they are encouraged to use throughout the class when identifying pieces, posing questions, or assisting each other. Instructors circulate and assist the children in realizing their project goals.

When the participants have satisfied basic requirements of a project, they are encouraged to further explore engineering applications of the principles and construction methods by inspecting, testing, modifying, and rebuilding. At the end of each class session, students are expected to dismantle their projects and put away their materials.
