Field Trip Group Rate: $4.00 per person
Take an architectural field trip around the world! Your students will travel from San Francisco to Shanghai, Dubai to Chicago and admire 13 large-scale skyscrapers, made entirely out of LEGO Bricks, that make each skyline unique.
April: It’s not just a box – it’s your very own new gaming contraption. Use everyday materials to create your own version of a pinball-like machine.
Every Saturday & Sunday in April: Our Think Tank Workshops have been overrun with LEGO bricks! Let your imagination run free and solve each of our Spring Break themed challenges. As the challenges increase in difficulty, your LEGO creations will increase in ingenuity.
Thursday, April 27 - Discover what sinks, floats or flinks! Experiment with different items and even build your own bathtub toy to take home!
May: Link everyday materials together and turn them into a creature that moves according to your specifications. Have fun while you learn about the components of simple machines and how they set the world around us into motion.
Thursday, May 4 - Explore shadows and ultraviolet light while learning about the changes from day to night.
Every Saturday & Sunday in May: Light up the room when you sew LED lights into a wearable that you’ve designed. Learn about circuits as you work with electrically conductive thread. The fashions you create are sure to make you shine!
June: Design and build your own simple machine. Learn the basics of mechanics, including gear ratios, cams and followers. Bring to life a mechanical machine that dances and twirls or jumps and shakes as you get to choreograph all your character’s moves.
June 3 & 4: What makes a simple, complex or parallel circuit and how can you complete one using play-dough? Let us show you in this exciting workshop that allows students to explore the properties of circuits using unconventional materials.
June 5 – 9: Catapults, Coasters & Cars – Get a first-hand look into the world of engineering. Build rockets, catapults, zip-lines and roller coasters using the Think It, Build It, Test It and Do It Again engineering philosophy.
June 10 & 11: Build off your newly developed circuitry skills and take them to a new level. Use new materials to create a critter that is entirely your own. Teach your critter to dance and doodle, slide and shake in a way that’s all your own. Finish the workshop by creating a badge that blinks and flashes thanks to your new soldering skills.
For ages 6 – 9: Kids are messy! Science can be too. We’ve taken our biggest and messiest experiments and put them together for a week of messy, sticky, gooey science fun!
For ages 10 – 13: Instill creativity and collaboration through play! Campers will use real tools to create cardboard creations that are only limited by their imagination.
June 12 – 16: Catapults, Coasters & Cars – Get a first-hand look into the world of engineering. Build rockets, catapults, zip-lines and roller coasters using the Think It, Build It, Test It and Do It Again engineering philosophy.
June 17 & 18: Begin this workshop by using special building blocks that contain inputs and outputs like motors, lights, batteries and buzzers and make them work together as part of a system you design. Then channel your inner seamstress to craft a conductive creation with LEDs and conductive thread that is sure to brighten any room.
For ages 6 – 9: Design, construction and playful exploration are part of the world around us. Campers will learn how something simple can be transformed into something extraordinary!
For ages 10 – 13: Become an Extreme Scientist-in-Training! Campers will see firsthand how our Extreme Scientists prepare and create the experiments at Imagination Station.
June 24 & 25: In this final workshop, put your new skills to the test as you learn more about how different colors of light interact as you experiment with light and shadows. Complete the series by combining your knowledge of circuitry and creativity to create a greeting card that will truly shine.
For ages 6 – 9: This camp is for fixers, tinkerers and makers! You can become a Young MacGyver and learn to fashion solutions to problems using only the tools available.
For ages 10 – 13: Let your imagination run wild as you tinker with a variety of tools and materials. Tinkering camp inspires creativity, imagination, playfulness, brainstorming and collaboration!
For ages 10 – 13: Kids are messy! Science can be too. We’ve taken our biggest and messiest experiments and put them together for a week of messy, sticky, gooey science fun!
July 8 & 9: Link everyday materials together and turn them into a creature that moves according to your specifications. Create a story, adjust the light and put on a show while you learn about the components of simple machines and how they set the world around us into motion.
July 15 & 16: Explore the engineering that goes into creating paths and obstacles. You will construct contraptions that meet specific design parameters. Then, create your own version of a pinball-like machine and decide what obstacles go where, what noises it should make and even what the rules are to win.
July 22 & 23: Put your observation skills to the test with a challenging activity that includes matching sounds to objects. Then, become a VIP builder for the Nerdy Derby. In a private build area, construct and engineer a car to race down the hills and valleys of a 40 foot track – the only rule... there are no rules. Attempt to build the fastest or slowest car for your chance to win a prize.
July 29 & 30: In this final workshop, become the true master of engineering by creating your very own robot. Begin with exploring the properties of movement using segmented joints to create a robot hand. Complete the series by programming a LEGO® robot to move through obstacles using drag and drop coding.
