LEGO® Engineering Summer Camps at DCM

Learning possibilities with LEGO® bricks are endless. From engineering and science to storytelling and collaborative play, LEGOs do it all. We are offering camps from Play-Well TEKnologies and Bricks 4 Kidz.

 

Play-Well TEKnologies provides project-based programs designed to teach principles and methods of engineering using LEGO®. Their curriculum is designed by engineers, building on the math and science skills students learn during the school year. Utilizing over 20,000 pieces of LEGO® for each class, they engage campers in solving real-world engineering challenges that explore concepts in physics, architecture, and engineering. The goal is to have campers foster a greater appreciation of how things work, and encourage the qualities of inquisitiveness, self-reliance, and self-confidence in children.

 

Bricks 4 Kidz camps are interactive and hands-on, where kids discover, explore, invent and create using LEGO® bricks, gears, and motors. Camps incorporate building and exploring STEM concepts through motorized creations, model figure builds, mosaics, games, & collaborative challenges. Each camp incorporates a FUN theme that the activities are centered around.
