Complete LEGO challenges using your math skills!
Are you a budding engineer who loves to solve puzzles and play logic games? Do you love to solve puzzles, play logic games, and build amazing LEGO structures? Join us for LEGO Engineering! In the mornings, we will introduce new strategies to build number sense and mathematical fluency, and we will reinforce these skills with fun and engaging games and activities each day such as Othello, Gravity Maze, Zeus on the Loose, Pentago, and Genius Square.
In the afternoons, we will apply these math strategy and reasoning skills to the world of engineering and LEGO building! Students will have fun developing problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration skills as they make, test, and evaluate creations such as slingshot rockets, paper airplanes, and rocket straws. What elements help to fly faster and higher? These are some of the questions we will be investigating. Basic mathematical concepts will be incorporated as students learn to design and test their equipment. Using LEGOs, students will utilize their math skills (patterning, geometry, measurement, and logic) to create and build a variety of structures and objects such as mazes, buildings, towers, bridges, and zip lines. Campers will learn how these math skills apply to the building of their creations.
LEGO Engineering Camp is directed by Ms. Ann Bremner, SSSAS Director of Lower School Mathematics. If you have any questions about this camp, please reach out to Ms. Bremner at email@example.com.
