Description

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!

Additional Information

Brix & Eng Camp: Machine Mania
This BRIXOLOGY day features wacky machines that teach you how gears, levers, and pulleys are useful tools for mechanical engineers. Use simple machines to complete tasks like sending messages across the room and picking up your snack and more! Day 2.
Brix & Eng Camp: Newton's Loco-Motion
Discover Newton’s Laws and get hands-on experience with forces, changes in motion, and action and reaction that will make you do the “locomotion.” Typically day 4 of this camp.
Brix & Eng Camp: Rockin' Rockets
Launch your imagination to new heights and explore aerospace engineering! Learn the fundamentals of rocketry; including the parts of a rocket, the stages of rocket flight, and how Newton’s third law applies to a rocket traveling to space. Typically Day 5
Brix & Eng Camp: Super Structures
Put on your engineer’s hat and get ready for an action packed day of structural engineering! Work together with your fellow civil engineers to use physics to solve problems. Typically Day 1 of this camp.
Brix & Eng Camp: Water Works
Set sail into this exciting day of exploration of nautical engineering! Participate in collaborative engineering challenges to solve real-world problems in boat design. Typically Day 3 of this camp.
