The Great Race - Ages 5 - 7

We've got a week full of designing motorized vehicles with LEGO® components to take us around the globe in record time.

Our projects and destinations include:
  • A speedy train to travel across the USA
  • An ultralight plane to fly from New York to Paris
  • A dunebuggy to race from Paris to Moscow
  • A dogsled to travel across eastern Russia
  • A sailboat to cross the Pacific and get to the finish line

Students build motor-driven vehicles with LEGO® components, customize their projects and then run them on missions. At the end of each day our class sees how we are doing in the race and answers questions together about building and geography to gain extra race points.

Students learn how different vehicles work, how the size and placement of gears affect their project's power and speed, how pulley belts are used to transfer motion, how to make a trailer for vehicles, how wheels and axles work, and other science and engineering concepts.
