Building and Designing Simple Machines: How do you build a simple machine out of LEGO® bricks? This mini-camp we will explore and test the function of different LEGO® technic components and discover how those components can work together to create all kinds of simple machines. Campers will create a Spider that crawls on 8 legs and modify our Dragster for maximum speed. Campers will explore the creative process of model design and at the completion of the camp, each camper will have the opportunity to present his or her own design idea or design enhancements to family, neighbors and friends. Come build with us.
