Weekly classes

Our LEGO® classes are 75 to 90 minutes in length and follow the school term schedule. These weekly classes have been designed around LEGO Education’s 4C principles of Connect, Construct, Contemplate and Continue.  Through guidance and teamwork, our Mini-Engineers will build simple machines, learn STEM concepts, have fun and inspire each other.   With exception of Nursury Classes, children build in teams of two and each team is given their own LEGO kit. 
 

Nursery LEGO Class

Age Group:
3 to 4 years
Notes:
This is NOT a drop off class. Parents/carers are encouraged to sit on the side.
Does your 3 or 4 year old enjoy playing with LEGO? Our Nursery Class uses LEGO Duplo to introduce your child to early learning concepts while having fun building. Each class will focus on a different topic incorporating letters, sounds, numbers, shapes and colours. Our instructors will encourage discussion of the topics to help children develop their listening and speaking skills.  The children will also learn different building techniques as they employ their creativity to express their thoughts.  After the children have completed their builds, they will share their creations with the rest of the class.  Our aim is to help your child’s language development, numeracy, creativity and imagination while encouraging collaboration and of course preparing them to be great Mini-Engineers!

Moving Creations

Age Group:
5 to 8 years (Year 1 to Year 3)
Learn to engineer with creativity!  Our Moving Creations is a great first introduction to building simple movable models using LEGO technic.  In this class, our Mini-Engineers will work in pairs to build a design that demonstrates simple machines by incorporating gears, levers and pulleys.  Afterwards, the children will use their creativity to add their finishing touches by creating a setting for their models.  From spinning merry-go-rounds on playgrounds to firing catapults in castles - with imagination anything is possible.

My “Space” Diary – LEGO Stop Motion

Age Group:
7 to 11 years (Year 3 to Year 6)
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go into space?  Would you like to explore beyond our planet? In this class we will go on an epic journey to a different planet and will be filming a stop motion diary to record events and discoveries each week.  Each team will plan, discuss, script and animate their space journey using our provided stop motion software.   With our LEGO Space Kit we will build the equipment we need to launch our mission and return to earth safely.   Parents will be invited to the grand finale to welcome our astronauts back to earth and each child will be able to take home their masterpiece on a Mini-Engineers USB stick.    It's out of this world!

“The Mini-Engineers class was a fantastic experience for Alexandar. He has many Lego sets at home but he was never really into them. Since we came to Mini-Engineers workshop Alex has changed completely. He built all his Lego sets independently and now he has his Lego corner in his bedroom.  Great club!  We are looking forward to many more Lego sessions.”
