PRE ENGINEERING USING LEGO – PreK 4 full-day classes only

Kids are already naturally gifted creators…then they get added inspiration from Play-Well specially trained instructors along with over ten thousand LEGO pieces. Kids will build engineer designed projects such as boats, bridges, mazes and motorized cars, and use special pieces to create their own unique design. While the kids build elaborate objects, structures and vehicles, they explore fundamental principles of engineering and physics. They also learn to collaborate and create without fear of mistakes. The experience is joyful and the impact long lasting.

Goals of the class are to:

– Solve problems.

– Develop and enhance each student’s problem solving and critical thinking skills.

– Introduce students to concepts and vocabulary of Engineering, Architecture, and Physics.

– Explore the world.

Dream it. Build it. Wreck it. Repeat.
