Space Explorers Ages 5-7

featuring LEGO® Motors and Lights

All New Projects for 2018!

Morning camp (9:00am-12:00pm)

The year is 2025. Our rocket ship has landed on a distant planet and our class has been asked to make it a comfortable place to live and explore. We'll build homes, rovers, machines and spacecraft - and power them with LEGO® motors. Plus, we'll get to create a speeder for a visiting Star Wars® heroine named Rey.

The projects include:

  • A space home with rotating 'solar panels' above the roof powered by a LEGO® motor
  • All-terrain rover equipped with a satellite dish to explore the planet and report findings back to base
  • Motorized robot to move boulders and transport supplies
  • Spacecraft to travel around the planet
  • Twin-engine Star Wars speeder
  • Use of special colorful light bricks for illumination

This class is great for a LEGO® fanatic as well as someone new to the world of construction. Students learn how to incorporate gears and light bricks into projects, use battery packs and motors for power, interlock bricks for strength, and make sturdy connections with LEGO Technic® beams and pegs. Students play with and test out their creations through obstacle courses, imaginative play, and various teacher-inspired missions.
