Using proven curriculum students will build simple and motorized machines learning about levers, pulleys, measurements, gear ratios, and much more. Children work in small groups to first build mechanisms based on lesson instructions and when familiar with the challenge children will be asked to improve on the design. As summarized in the LEGO Education materials “Students will investigate the principles of simple machines, mechanisms, and structures; experiment with balanced and unbalanced forces and friction; measure distance, time, speed, and weight; and much more.” Every class is different and challenges encourage critical thinking. Students that may repeat a session to investigate new solutions to problems.
