Projects include everyday vehicles, construction machines, and more! Students will learn a variety of concepts throughout this class, including basic engineering principles, gearing as well as gear ratios, electric motors and energy, integrated problem solving, forces in motion, and communication skills.

What makes Vehicle Brick Building™ great? 
This class is an outstanding class for youth who are interested in how things work and enjoy building exercises! Along with having a blast at this half-day session students get to explore concepts including:

  • Basic motor principles
  • Teamwork and Collaboration
  • Challenge students problem solving abilities
  • Pride in projects as students race the cars they build
  • Includes "Rubberband Car" Challenge (time permitting)
