Build LEGO® brick models that move!  In our classes, students work with a partner to build a new motorized model each week, plus enjoy creative exploration time each class. Weekly emails with educational concepts, vocabulary, and a picture of the model allow families to explore and build together after class. Every student builds a custom LEGO® minifigure and takes it home to keep at the end of the session! (Students re-use the model kit parts each week, so models don't go home.) We offer different learning units and themes each semester, so students are always building and learning something new!
