Creative Engineering with Lego – via Zoom!

Block 1 

We will go on an adventure through engineering from Mechanical Engineering through to Civil Engineering. We’ll be exploring different types of vehicles, structures and natural elements, and examining how and why they work; how we can replicate the design and construction, and even improve it!

 

Through our adventure together we’ll learn the engineering concepts that include:  

 

  • Tower construction (strength in construction, balance, design skills)
  • Propelling vehicles with renewable energy
  • Move Lego Figures safely down a zip line with gravitational force, learning about velocity, balance, friction and more…
  • Using the power of pulleys to lift weight with minimal effort.
  • Launching ping pong balls across your room by making a catapult, learning projectile motion, mechanisms, tension, gravity, and stored energy.

 

  • Making a spirograph which teaches the mechanics of gears and geometry!

Working through these activities we will be exploring physics, maths and design within engineering, and build our own Lego design portfolio!

Classes are run with an expression of interest – please contact us to let us know you would to participate and we will work with you to arrange days and times. 

 

We will email you the zoom link before the classes; these emails will come from Nick@oscaw.com

Description

Creative Engineering with Lego! 

Engineering is all around us – from the construction of our houses to how our car moves along the road – without engineering the world around us would look very different!

In these lessons we are going to use Lego to learn how the world of engineering works.

Like real engineers, we will work through an engineering process starting at the brief, and then moving through the design phase; we will discuss what materials we’ll need and then build our designs, before testing and evaluating our creations, in a fun and hands on way!

By the end of our five week block we’ll have a portfolio of Lego engineering projects.

We will go on an adventure through engineering from Mechanical Engineering through to Civil Engineering. We’ll be exploring different types of vehicles, structures and natural elements, and examining how and why they work; how we can replicate the design and construction, and even improve it!

 

Through our adventure together we’ll learn the engineering concepts that include:

  • Using the power of pulleys to lift weight with minimal effort.

  • Making a spirograph which teaches the mechanics of gears and geometry!

Working through these activities we will be exploring physics, maths and design within engineering!

To learn all of this you will need a mix of standard Lego bricks and a few little additions (such as elastic bands, string, balloons, paper, etc.) for certain sessions, which you will receive an email about in advance.

 

 

How our sessions work…

We start our session with a friendly introduction and settling period – which includes time for show and tell should students want to show anything they’ve created, helping to improve social skills.

We then have a chat about the brief and topic, before moving onto the design phase, by putting pen to paper to plan out our creation and decide what bricks we will need.

Now it’s time to build! Students are encouraged to guide themselves through their builds but I’m on hand throughout should they need assistance, want to show what they are doing, or ask questions!

After the building stage we move to testing and evaluating; we’ll look at how our creations work – or maybe don’t – and will work out why, and if we can make improvements.

 

During the lessons we will have moved through all the phases a real engineer would in a project. Students will have a full understanding of what the process entails and they will develop design skills, problem solving skills, different building techniques, material selection, communication skills, fine motor skills and dexterity.

 

If this engineering adventure sounds perfect for your little ones register now!

    Fun and educational – my kids love these classes!

    As soon as my son hears me tell him it’s Lego Engineering time he’s straight here, even faster than when I call him for dinner! He loves the classes. Nick has a gift for making the sessions really educational whilst having loads of fun. He helps the children onto the next stage individually allowing them the chance to figure things out for themselves whilst not letting them feel frustrated. I highly recommend the sessions!
