Join us for a week of building magic as we design vehicles for our favorite movie and TV characters using LEGO elements. We’ll create motorized versions of the Minion mobile, Scooby-doo’s Mystery Machine, the Ghostbuster Ecto-1, the Optimus Prime Transformer, and Luke’s X-wing fighter from Star Wars. You’ll learn all about vehicle design, wheels and axles, gears, and how to add motors to LEGO creations.Then, in the afternoon, we’ll use the K’NEX construction system to build structures and mechanical f/x to accompany our vehicles. Design a haunted house complete with a spinning “ghost” for the Ghostbusters to encounter. Build a motorized Tie-fighter or the Death Star to challenge Luke? Use your creativity and learn new building techniques so that you’ll be able to design anything that you can dream up!
