LEGO Race Car On-Site Field Trip

Student engineers learn about simple machines and their real-world applications. Teams of two students work together to a build a “4 in 1 LEGO car” and then run a series of experiments to test various engineering and STEM theories and concepts. The skills and traits of the engineering profession are discussed and incorporated. This On-Site Field Trip

consists of 60 minutes of instruction. Using our Teacher Guide, you will teach this and the material can be easily adjusted according to students’ age and/or grade levels.  At the end of the building process, the students race their cars.
