This is where we deliver our sessions to 6-11 year old children, inspiring them in Science, Technology, Maths and Engineering.
- They are given an AE set of LEGO and an instruction sheet for the model they will build.
- As they build, they are helped as necessary by the instructor or assistant.
- Once the model is complete, they are given a curriculum-linked worksheet, based on their school level (KS1, KS2 Lower, KS2 Higher) to complete.
- Once complete, they share this with the instructor who gives some more suggestions on how the model could be modified or improved. They have some time to modify, experiment on and play with the model, showing their parents if they want.
- Finally, the model is disassembled and the parts put back in the set box.
- Each student then puts their worksheet in their file (which they take home). On the back of the worksheet are some questions to prepare for next week’s model.
- In some centres, children have the chance to use the free-play area to exercise their creativity. There is no time limit on the free-play, or on the model build, however we have found that children typically take about an hour to complete the model build and worksheet.
