Engineering: Crazy Action Contraptions


Youth / S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) / Prek-Elementary S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) -
Summer 2021

Unleash your imagination as you journey through the wide-ranging world of LEGO® building. Students working in pairs will build models and discuss the engineering science behind each. This fun, hands-on class shows students how engineering can be fun and silly yet still educational. Students will then be challenged to improve the model and customize their creations. Possible models include the Never-Look-Back Machine, Skittletops, Do-Nothing Machine, Coat Hanger Daredevil, Trapdoor Cable Car Parachute Machine, Rubberband Racer, Balloon-Powered Car, and other Crazy Action Contraptions. Please bring a drink and snack daily.


Due to COVID-19 precautions, only registered participants of activities are allowed in District buildings.

  • Instructors will greet students at the entrance before class and return them to the same door when class is complete.
  • Instructors will wear a mask 
  • Anyone over the age of 5 years must wear a face covering at all times – regardless of what activity they’re participating in.

Your cooperation will help keep everyone safe and allow us to continue to offer enrichment activities and sports and we thank you in advance.
