Real World Engineering and Design with LEGO Machines & Mechanisms

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be an engineer and use technology to solve real world problems? In this hands-on program you will work on experiments and build machines, pneumatic devices, and renewable energy applications. You and your team will be given real life issues to solve and you’ll need to use your engineering skills to find a solution for these problems. This program will feature exploring renewable energy through real-life models; investigating energy supply, transfer, accumulation, conversion and consumption; building and exploring pneumatics; investigating power systems and components; reading and measuring pressure; and exploring kinetic and potential energy. As the week goes on you will gain more engineering knowledge and be able to build more complex mechanisms and solutions. No prior experience is necessary! All skill levels are welcome.

Attention all young engineers and aspiring problem solvers! Are you looking for a summer camp program that can challenge your creativity and develop your engineering skills? Look no further than the Real World Engineering and Design with LEGO Machines & Mechanisms, a summer camp program from Fleming Tech Camps. This exciting and dynamic program offers an innovative and hands-on approach to learning about engineering using LEGO.

Throughout this program, campers will have the opportunity to learn how to construct complex machines and pneumatic devices using LEGO Machines and Mechanisms. They will also gain an in-depth understanding of how motors work and how they can be used to power their creations. By the end of the program, campers will have developed a range of engineering skills and will be equipped to solve real-world problems with innovative and creative solutions.

One of the key objectives of this program is to help campers develop their engineering skills by working on progressively more difficult challenges. From constructing basic machines to building more complex structures, campers will have the opportunity to learn and grow with each new challenge they take on. With the guidance of experienced instructors, campers will be encouraged to think outside the box and come up with unique solutions to engineering problems.

Collaboration is also an important part of this program, as campers will work together in small teams to solve more difficult problems as the week goes on. Through this collaborative process, campers will learn how to communicate effectively with their peers, work together to achieve a common goal, and develop their problem-solving skills in a fun and engaging way.

In conclusion, if you’re looking for a summer camp program that can inspire your inner engineer and foster your problem-solving skills, the Real World Engineering and Design with LEGO Machines & Mechanisms program from Fleming Tech Camps is the perfect choice. With its hands-on approach to learning, collaborative environment, and focus on real-world problem-solving, this program is sure to provide an unforgettable experience that will benefit campers for years to come.
