Course Details

Lesson 1-1: Since ancient times, catapults have been considered the greatest engineering construction. Let's pretend that we go back thousands of years and build our own catapult, but with the help of Lego.

Lesson 1-2: The students will learn how an ordinary rubber band can serve as a motor for a car. We build a rubber-motor car and have a competition for accuracy and range.

Lesson 2-1: In the classroom, pull a rope, assemble a monkey from the Lego constructor, and launch it. It will climb the rope to get to the banana. It looks very realistic.

Lesson 2-2: A fun toy that is easy to make with your own hands. Demonstrates how jet propulsion engines work. The nozzle (here the nozzle is a tube) blows out the engine working body under pressure and makes the car go in the opposite direction.

Lesson 3-1: Two simple elements: a stick and plasticine. At first glance it is not clear what you can do with it. But we can help you get creative and make a very interesting construction. Let's build the Eiffel Tower.

Lesson 3-2: In the inventor course we will be inventing and conquering new heights. Today with LEGO we will build the tallest model of a crane. The main thing is to make sure that it stands and does not fall. My model is 20 cm high, can you build more?

Lesson 4-1: Today's project is a fun flying toy you can make with your own hands and fly that sneaks in a little aerodynamics lesson.  It's a great no-screen activity that gets students outdoors.

Lesson 4-2: Let's build a machine out of lego that will clear the streets of trash. In the classroom, we'll make a dirty street out of sheets of paper and see who can do it faster and better.

Lesson 5-1: Everyone loves the popular game "Young Bears". With the help of the constructor "Kapla", let's build a house. Put the birds on it and shoot them with the catapult. The catapult will be created with Lego constructor.

Lesson 5-2: At the end of the week we have a special competition. Students will create their own paper airplanes and launch them using a robot. We will create several models and have a competition. Which model will fly next?
