Brixology (Engineering with LEGO)

Brixology sets the foundation for our next generation of makers! Kids learn about different types of engineering and then team up to construct different engineering-themed projects using LEGO® bricks. They learn about aerospace engineering while assembling a space station. They explore mechanical engineering as they build boats and vehicles. That's not all: from carnival rides to drawing machines, mechanical animals to truss bridges, your future engineer will build upon their creativity to solve real-world design challenges, while developing their problem-solving and team-building skills. Let the tinkering begin!


Hard Copies went home last week. Registration for Brixology
