Lego Mechanical Engineering

 by Brick Works Academy
STEM, Summer Camp
9 - 14 yearsRegistration required, Drop-off

Ready to take your lego creations to the next level with electric motors, gears, cams, and more? We'll put lego into motion and work together to build a Rube Goldberg machine. These are also known as "Great Ball Contraptions" in the lego community and they're built at lego conventions around the world. You'll design and build an awesome module, and your machine will feed the next machine...which will feed the next machine...and so on and so on. In the end, hundreds of balls will be cycling through the machines in a continuous, epic loop. What will your machine look like?

Parents: Dream of your child going into Mechanical or Systems Engineering? This is a great first step!

This camp is for ages 9 to 14. Note: Sorry students who are not yet 9 may not attend regardless of lego proficiency.

Drop off between 8:30-9:00am (Movie Time)

Pickup between 4:00-5pm. (Movie Time)

Extended hours option 8am to 5:30pm at additional cost.


Students from our Robotics, and Minecraft classes interested in learning to program and electronics can add this option to their week of camp. Spend an hour each day on this introduction to Arduino and get to take home your very own micro controller to continue to tinker on projects at home.

Combines hardware and software platforms for a fun hands-on learning environment. Children will work on different projects each week while learning to design and create their own programs!

No upcoming offerings.
