Energy is essential to almost everything we do, from the lights in our homes and classrooms to the gasoline that fuels our cars. This workshop will introduce students to the world of energy in all its amazing forms. We will explore many sources of energy from wind and solar power to biofuel and fossil fuel. Students will define terms like renewable, landfill, greenhouse effect and generator and use LEGO® Bricks to build moving models of just some of the awesome ways we power our world.
Bricks 4 Kidz classes provide an extraordinary atmosphere for children ages 3-13+, where we learn, we build, we play with LEGO® Bricks. Our programs are built around proprietary model plans, designed by engineers and architects to provide the building blocks for the Bricks 4 Kidz approach to educational play.
