The Jr. Brick Engineer program uses the proven LEGO®Education curriculum to introduce your child to scientific concepts by exploring, investigating and building with hands-on activities.

Each week, your child will be presented with a real-world problem and guided through a creative solution. Using pulleys, levers, gears, wheels and axles, they will build a machine.  Next they will make a prediction about how it will work and then put it to the test!  This fun program provides boys and girls with hands-on learning of concepts such as balance, buoyancy, and energy.

This program will not only enrich your child from an educational perspective, but also reinforce teamwork.  Children work in pairs, using a “building buddy” system. This type of cooperative learning strengthens communication skills and also builds self-esteem .

Join us each week to build machines such as Seesaws, Spinning tops, Rafts, Car Launchers, and more using DUPLO® bricks!  The machines built during this program change periodically so your child can attend this program more than once.

Children do not take the machines home.

Parents are welcome, but not required, to participate during the last 10 minutes of class to see the creative energy in action and also learn more about the concepts covered during the program.
