Bring your LEGO bricks to this amazing engineering class. It's improvisational engineering at its finest. Together we will explore how engineers can use the design process to build with standard parts. Every class spends time brainstorming new design challenges to use in the future. Over the course of 4 weeks, students discover how to use the engineering design process to: * Build something they didn't think could be made with LEGO pieces, * Tackle unexpected building challenges, * Create...
I'm an experienced mechanical engineer who loves empowering kids as designers. I love facilitating the LEGO Engineering Challenge because it provides an excellent opportunity for kids to get their hands on engineering.
Students will need to bring bricks to every class to have a full experience of the course. Any mix of LEGO pieces will do. I advise having at least 150 bricks available to the student every class. If you're looking to have exactly one kit with its own carrying case, I encourage using the Large Classic Brick Box (https://shop.lego.com/en-US/LEGO-Large-Creative-Brick-Box-10698). If you're pulling LEGO bricks out from your learners existing collection, I recommend the following base supply of pieces (adding select elements like wheels, windows, and small 1x1 pieces to add unique flavor to each build): 20 1x2 15 1x4 20 2x2 30 2x4 5 2x8 20 Slants 8 2x4 flats 8 2x6 flats 4 2x8 flats 4 4x4 flats 2 4x8 flats
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The LEGO Engineering Challenge class focuses on using the engineering design process to come up with original constructions. Younger students keen on developing their own designs are welcome to join the class. To help with the auditory experience of the course, I ask that learners mute their microphones when actively building in class. Learners are welcome to unmute themselves during the building period to ask questions. Please encourage your learner to experiment with muting and unmuting their microphone.
