Pre-K Bricktopia

Designed for students just getting introduced to Brick Builder engineering. These courses use both LEGO® duplo blocks (the bigger ones) and regular LEGO® components (the smaller ones). Students build numerous projects and use each project to investigate basic engineering concepts.

Curricula includes:

  • Simple Machines – An introduction to four of the six simple machines we use every day. We study: levers, wheels & axles, pulleys, and gears.
  • Structures – Build a wall. Knock it down. Build a stronger wall and try to knock this one down. No chance! Through hands-on, experiential projects, students learn why a stadium roof is built a certain way, how to anchor a wall and how a suspension tower works. Projects include: towers, bridges, stadiums, a fishing pole and even a machine operated soccer goalie. Fun and informative. Sure to ignite your inner-engineer!
  • Shapes and Badges – Students build and design different shapes, badges, logos and objects. Designed for younger LEGO® builders. This course is a great introduction to basic concepts.
