Advanced Engineering: Motorized Machines
Unlock your inner Engineer! Join us as we explore, investigate & solve problems while we learn about the building blocks of mechanical engineering. This exciting engineering class combines LEGO® Education & LEGO® Technic™ materials to explore machines by building realistic motorized and non-motorized models.Students working in pairs will enjoy hands-on activities with high emphasis on building techniques while developing an understanding of mechanical principles of pulleys, levers, gears, and wheels. Students will be encouraged to apply what they learn and come up with creative solutions to engineering challenges.Please bring a drink & snack daily.
Tech Academy has decades of experience integrating technology into education. Two educators started implementing programs using technology before the current mouse device was invented! Since 1984, Tech Academy has evolved a proprietary technology curriculum serving the education needs of:
- Elementary schools
- After school centers and summer camps
- Professional development
Our services seamlessly integrate with the education goals and culture of each school or center. Our TechStars programs are built for a project-based learning environment while students reinforce core academic content and foster the STEM skills in collaboration, problem solving, and creative thinking.The project –based learning for children from Kindergarten through eighth grade integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math along with Arts. Integrating inquiry and creative expression promotes the creation of new industries, which secures our economic future.
