Course Details

Lesson 1-1: Students should follow the building instructions to build the model of the fan. This is one of the simplest models to be built and experiment with by improving the length of propellers. Moving Satellite project introduces building and coding using the motor further, making it turn for a set amount of time.

Lesson 1-2: Make an Astronaut Lander. In this challenge, design and build a lander that will protect two "astronauts" when they touch down. Just as engineers had to develop solutions for landing different kinds of vehicles on the Moon and Mars.

Lesson 2-1: Going through asteroid belts and other space dangers, we have finally reached the orbit of a planet that is similar to Earth. We need to scan the terrain and find out if we can settle a colony. To achieve it, we need to build a network of Global Eye projects.

Lesson 2-2: Create a paper rocket that can be launched from a soda straw – then, modify the design to make the rocket fly farther!

Lesson 3-1: To launch orbiting spacecraft and various cargos, we have to spend high amounts of costly and not eco-friendly fuel. Creating a space elevator should significantly reduce the costs of space exploration. The idea behind this device is to attach a long wire to the Earth and into orbit. Students should build and program their space elevators with LEGO WeDo. The elevators should be at least 80 cm high.

Lesson 3-2: Have you ever wondered how hard it is to land at a specific spot on the Moon, Mars, or another planet? Find out in this activity by building a device that can zip down a line and drop a "lander" onto a target. Students will build a rubber-band-powered rover that can scramble across the room."

Lesson 4-1: Scout robots can help us to find resources to develop the colony. You can use special sensors to find specific signals. Such antennas can rotate and determine the required location. The goal is to build fast robots and unite them in one team to complete an obstacle course and arrive at valuable resources.

Lesson 4-2: Combine your engineering and creative thinking skills to create a robot hand. This simple and inventive activity will show you how to create a moving, bendable hand.

Lesson 5-1: Today is a big day in the history of the human race. We have found intelligent life outside Earth! Not the alien being themselves, but they left a lot of broken robots. Students' task is to repair the robot, find out more about the mysterious race, why they left the planet, and where they went.

Lesson 5-2: Students are challenged to design and build rockets from two-liter plastic soda bottles that travel as far and straight as possible or stay aloft as long as possible. Teams design for maximum distance or hang time.
