Galactic Adventures - Ages 5 - 7

The year is 2025. Our rocket ship has landed on a distant planet and our class has been asked to make it a comfortable place to live and explore. We'll build homes, rovers, machines and spacecraft - and power them with LEGO® motors.

The projects include:
  • A space home with motorized rotating solar panels
  • All-terrain rover equipped with a satellite dish to explore the planet and report findings back to base
  • Research buggy with extras like a drill to analyze rocks and dig for minerals
  • Spacecraft to travel around the planet

This class is great for a LEGO® fanatic as well as someone new to the world of brick construction. Students learn how to incorporate gears into projects, use battery packs and motors to power creations, interlock bricks for strength, make sturdy connections with LEGO Technic® beams and pegs, and more! Students play with and test out their creations through obstacle courses, imaginative play, and various teacher-inspired missions.
