LEGO Camp at Manchester University

teaches engineering skills, too

Your child might be a future engineer! For sure, she (or he) can become a problem-solver and test engineering principles right now – at LEGO Camp the week of June 24-28 on Manchester University’s North Manchester campus!

At the very fun weeklong event, students in grades 2-5 build as many as 10 mechanisms and motorized machines, including a merry-go-round, watch tower, gear racer and tower crane.

As they assemble the items, the youngsters learn basic principles about engineering, science, technology and math. By working with LEGO Camp classmates, the students learn about teamwork and increase their creativity and communication skills.

Registration of $99 includes instruction, use of LEGO kits and a camp T-shirt. Students attend either the morning (8-11 a.m.) or afternoon (1-4 p.m.) session.

Registration forms also are on-line at www.manchester.edu. Click on Conference Services on the top of the page, then on Upcoming Events. Or contact MU Conference Services at 260-982-5246.
