LEGO Engineering: Power, Power, Power

Grades 4-5 Power Up some fun as students use LEGO’s Motorized Mechanism kits with the Renewable Energy add-on sets to explore pneumatics and renewable energy! Design and build motorized vehicles and harness solar and wind energy to power a car. LEGO pneumatic kits allow students to pump up the action as they explore the properties of gasses (pneumatics) to raise a scissor lift. Get energized!

> Subjects: Power, Renewable Energy, Engineering design, Motors

There are several LEGO Mechanisms builds students can do in this program, each of which focuses on a specific mechanism or form of power:

  1. Robot Arm (hydraulics)
  2. Car (solar power)
  3. Scissor Lift (pneumatics)
  4. Land Yacht (wind power)

>  Grades 4 – 5
>  For groups between 20-60 students (larger class sizes may be split in half)
>  Single Session (60 min)
>  After School Series (multiple weeks, 60 min each day)
