Let your child spend a few days over Spring Break with friends having fun with Legos. The Cultural Activities Center (CAC) is announcing Spring break Lego workshops. As the tag line says, “LEGO® Dream it. Build it. Wreck it. Repeat.” Kids, ages 5-12 are will be able to participate in Lego engineering activities. The workshops will be held Mar. 14-16, and the kids will be divided into their age groups for a morning and afternoon session.
The morning session will be for ages 5-7, and is called Construction Vehicles & Machines. This workshop takes place from 9am to noon. Children will dig into engineering with big trucks, construction vehicles, and super machines. They will explore the engineering terms, concepts, and vocabulary behind large scale building machines. Kids will also get to build and learn about steamrollers, bulldozers, wrecking balls, tower cranes, and more while building with their favorite building system, LEGO®.
Also for the older kids, there are afternoon sessions are for ages 8-12 and will be from 1pm-4pm. This age group will participate in the Engineering Challenge. Children in this workshop will learn to build mechanical devices such as a scissor lift, air compressor, or drawbridge in this advanced course for our strongest LEGO® builders. The kids will get to work in teams to accomplish a large-scale mission such as a mini figure rescue or a Rube Goldberg machine!
Cost for either session is $99 per child, for the three day, Monday- Wednesday workshop. Pre-registration is online. Click HERE to register through Play-Well TEKnologies, all classes are held at the Cultural Activities Center in Temple.
