Our Lego Engineering program is up and running for 2022 with lessons taking place for the students in Years 3 to 6.
The program helps to develop the students’ skills and knowledge in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) whilst building a variety of models such as a carousel, helicopter, industrial mixer and a chronoscope. During these lessons we learn about some of the different forces that help these machines work and students work with a partner to follow a series of instructions in order to build the model. We also look for ways to innovate our designs to help them to go faster, work safer or move with greater accuracy.
These sessions will continue throughout this year with the students in years 5 and 6 participating in the program this term and the students in years 3 and 4 completing a series of lessons next term. This program will continue throughout the remainder of the year hopefully without any of the COVID interruptions we have had in the past two year.
Here are our Year 5 students in action today building their carousel models…..
