Your WLES PTA is bringing two new after-school classes from The Great Adventure Lab: Lego Engineers for grades 1-2 and Young Engineers for grades 3-5. Sign-up today at http://tinyurl.com/ptxrvnf
Sunday’s ConnectEd message from Principal Shrewsbury had the flyer with all the information attached. Check the flyer for the discount codes exclusive for Waters Landing students.
Lego Engineers students learn and apply mechanical engineering concepts to create a wild amusement park ride, a go-cart, and, of course…a catapult! Students learn the physics behind levers, gears, pulleys, and other simple machines using LEGO® Education’s Simple Machines set. Lego Engineers classes introduce a new project each week, and students are encouraged to improvise on their designs just like in our robotics classes! (Please note this class is different from the Lego Robotics which we offered in previous years.)
Young Engineers students learn basic engineering concepts by designing and building cool projects like bridges, egg drops safety-devices, and working catapults that are almost as large as your child! Class meets indoors, but we’ll periodically venture outside to test out what we build. Each student takes home his or her own catapult. Last class is 90 minutes.
Classes start April 15, 2015.
