Get ready for the Bridges, Bricks, Blast-Off Brigade! Campers step into the shoes of engineers in this Mad Science FUN'gineered camp full of rockets, wacky machines, flying devices, roller coasters, and BRICKS! We have merged 2 days of our BRIXOLOGY program with 3 days of our “Adventures in Engineering” Camp to inspire our next generation of engineers in mechanical, structural, aerospace, and nautical engineering. For two days, children are challenged to use LEGO® bricks to assemble a space station and a mechanized drawing machine. They will also use their creativity to solve real-world design challenges like building a sailboat slalom and off-world habitat.
They build skyscrapers and are challenged to build the strongest bridge. Blast off a variety of rockets propelled my model engines, air, and water. Discover Newton’s Laws of Motion with a cool crash test dummy experiment and create a variety of boat and submarine designs. Children build and take-home projects like micro-pincher's, a wooden cube puzzle, balloon car, and flying fizzler rockets. Brixology take-homes are the Wave Rider Boat and Skyroller Zipline cable car which are compatible with campers LEGO® bricks at home. Come give your future engineer the opportunity to have a blast exploring all the wonders the world of engineering holds!
