Learn to build LEGO models that move! We will experiment with gears, motors and robotics components, learning to control our creations. Students work individually and with a partner to complete a new hands-on challenge each week. Students also enjoy creative exploration time each class. Every student builds a custom LEGO® minifigure and takes it home to keep at the end of the session! (Students re-use the project kit components each week, so our class materials won't go home.)
