FULL CLASS LIST

Build Your Mind: Ages 7 - 12 . . . . . . $39

RECOMMENDED AGES: 7 – 12

EXPERIENCE:  [X] Able to build LEGO® kits without assistance  [X] Desire to “free build” without instructions

PRE-REQUISITE: Interest in building tips, tricks, and new ideas

DURATION: 90 minutes

CLASS MAX: 6

INCLUDES: Mini LEGO Creator or City set ($10 Value)

SYNOPSIS: This instructor-led class promotes and advances the skills for students to “Free Build” – make their own models and creations without the use of instructions. Students are inspired and taught to build unique and individual designs with our vast selection of elements, including many hard-to-find parts such as hinges, socket joints, turntables, wheels/axles, windscreens. Each student is given guidance in selecting a theme, and then design hints, tips, tricks and advice to enhance their building skills and utilize pieces in new ways. SNOT (Studs Not On Top) construction is strongly promoted, as are the use of advanced parts and innovative design principles

OBJECTIVE: Teach young builders how to form ideas and then introduce free-flow model making and art creation using an assortment of common elements that can be combined in unlimited ways to make anything your mind can imagine.  Through demonstration, encouragement, and gentle assistance, our expert builders will teach young minds to explore their imagination and use common LEGO elements to create unique and personal models and help them to build their mind. Introduction of free-flow model making and sculpture design techniques by teaching students how to turn 2-dimensional ideas into 3-dimensional objects. From houses, cars, trees, and aircraft / spaceships to animals and abstracts shapes, students are encouraged to stretch their imagination and then build it.

APPROACH: Through the use of advanced elements and in combination with LEGO Technic elements, students are taught to free-flow ideas and turn them into 3-Dimensional creations with the help and guidance of a master builder.

STEAM SKILLS ACQUIRED / EDUCATIONAL BENEFIT: : STEAM SKILLS:
1. Science: Spatial Relations: identify, rotate, and assemble objects in “space”
2. Technology: basic relationships and ratios of the LEGO building system
3. Engineering: fine motor skills, basic instructional / visual interpretation
4. Art: creative design, visual interpretation and creation of various real-word and imaginary objects using advanced LEGO elements

Construction Basics: Ages 5 - 7 . . . . . . $39

RECOMMENDED AGES: 5 – 7

EXPERIENCE:  [X] Beginner, little or no building experience   [X] Looking for tips / tricks to better building w/ instructions

PRE-REQUISITE: Interest in Construction Toys / Bricks

DURATION: 90 minutes

CLASS MAX: 12

INCLUDES: LEGO Creator or City set, $20 value

SYNOPSIS: Students build and take home a LEGO® Creator® set while learning construction basics and the fundamental design principles for creating primary objects in the world around them. Students are shown tips and tricks in building more accurately and efficiently through an experienced LEGO builder and instructor.

OBJECTIVE: Through the selection of specific sets, students are taught a combination of techniques for both structural integrity and design characteristics – a blend of “function” and “form”. Students are introduced to the proper nomenclature of specific elements including brackets, turntables, hinges, axles, pins, beams, and more. Students are also taught how specific elements may be used and/or rotated in various ways to create alternative uses and functions for advanced building techniques.

APPROACH: Build specifically chosen LEGO Creator sets – and alternate models, as time permits – to demonstrate and guide students on the use of various common elements to effectively construct foundational structures and vehicles.

STEAM SKILLS ACQUIRED / EDUCATIONAL BENEFIT:
1. Science: 3D visualization and special relations
2. Technology: basic relationships and ratios of the LEGO building system
3. Engineering: fine motor skills, basic instructional / visual interpretation
4. Art: creative design, visual interpretation
5. Math: basic numbers and counting (studs), ratios, grouping

LEGO® TECHNIQUE: Brick / Plate / Tile combinations, Wheels and Axles, Windows and Doors, Introduction to Studs Not on TOP (SNoT) construction and 3-Dimensional Construction, Object Rotation

Technical Engineering: Ages 7 - 12 . . . . . . $39

RECOMMENDED AGES: 7 – 12

EXPERIENCE:  [X] Able to build LEGO® kits without assistance   [X] Able to work with small parts and detailed instructions

PRE-REQUISITE: Interest in Machines, Robotics, Advanced LEGO

DURATION: 90 minutes

CLASS MAX: 12

INCLUDES: LEGO Technic set, $20 value

SYNOPSIS: Students build and take home a LEGO Technic set, while being introduced to the parts, nomenclature, taxonomy, techniques, and unique building skills required for LEGO® Technic models and basic machines– a prerequisite for LEGO® Mindstorms®.

OBJECTIVE: Build an awareness of the unique and varied parts of the LEGO® Technic environment including gears, axles, beams, liftarms, bushings, friction pins, connectors, and more. Develop an appreciation of basic mechanics such as gearing ratios, worm drives, and levers. Prepare students for LEGO Mindstorms through a solid understanding of the Technic environment in complex machines.

APPROACH: Through the construction of various machines, visually and physically explore the mechanics of advanced Technic components and motorized functions while mastering the skills required for robotics. Students will learn how to quickly identify highly specific elements, nuanced differences between similar parts and their unique functionality, and how to combine multiple smaller elements to create a larger part with different properties.

STEAM SKILLS ACQUIRED / EDUCATIONAL BENEFIT:
1. Science: 3D visualization and special relations
2. Technology: advanced principles and properties of specialized elements
3. Engineering: Advanced Mechanics: construct complex machines and fully comprehend the working components, individually and collectively
4. Art: creative design, visual interpretation
5. Math: logic, sequencing, gearing ratios, axle lengths, liftarm angles

LEGO® TECHNIQUE: Fine Motor Skills: ability to grasp and assemble small parts in a precise manner to allow for smooth and steady motion; Working knowledge of gears, axles, beams, liftarms, bushings, friction pins, and connectors
