Brixology After School

 

Build, Learn, Take Home 

 

Aerospace: Launch your imagination to new heights as you explore aerospace engineering!  Discover the secrets of working in space –  efficiency and compact design.  Create a trussed space station  module, then connect it with others to  create a massive modular spacecraft

 

Carnivals: Feel the thrill as you build a spinning swing ride!  Learn about the forces and mechanical engineering concepts behind some of your favorite amusement park rides. Then improve and test the design to create an even wilder ride.

 

Creatures: Discover nature’s engineering secrets as we  investigate biomimicry! We can learn a lot about efficient design from observing plants and animals. Build a walking insect machine then test different ways to help it  climb up the steepest branch.

 

Vehicles: Get in gear as an automotive engineer! Build a  motorized vehicle and learn how to optimize it. Use wheels, axles and gears to reduce friction and make it work better. Then shift things into a higher gear to get a hands-on understanding of transmissions and gear ratios.

 

Towers: Reach for the sky! Find out how structural  engineers use ideas from physics to solve  problems. Work together to build a structurally  sound tower with a working elevator, then test and improve your design for strength  and stability.

 

Bridges: How can you build the strongest bridge? Work together with your fellow civil engineers to build and test different bridge designs. Then use what  you’ve learned to create  the strongest bridge possible

 

Boats: Create a sea-worthy vessel as you set sail with nautical engineering! Build and test a boat powered by potential and kinetic energy. Then try changing specific variables to improve speed, buoyancy, and stability 

 

Machines: Engineering is creative! Learn how  gears, levers, and pulleys are useful tools for mechanical engineers then  combine them with art and design to create and test a motorized drawing machine motorized vehicle and learn how to optimize it. Use wheels, axles and gears to reduce friction and make it work better. Then shift things into a higher gear to get a hands-on understanding of transmissions and gear ratios.
