Easter LEGO Workshops & Camps

A Young Engineers Holiday Event provides children with a fun and exciting way to explore science and engineering during their holidays. Our sessions involve the building of complex machines while learning about scientific and engineering principles. We keep classes small to ensure each child has a chance to learn and build at their own pace.

We are holding 3 different kinds of events during Easter 2019

  • 4 hour camps for ages 6 to 9 in Edinburgh
  • 2 hour workshops for ages 6 to 9 in South Queensferry, Dunfermline & Dalgety Bay, Lasswade and Stockbridge
  • 1.5 hour workshops for ages 3 to 5 in South Queensferry, Dunfermline & Dalgety Bay, Lasswade and Stockbridge

 

All bookings are subject to our Terms & Conditions

What will the children be doing?

Each day is different, children can attend for one day or the full programme

  • Monday: The Science of Easter: Our Easter themed day will include a LEGO easter egg decorating machine, a hoping bunny and a design challenge where we see how much weight an egg can hold.
  • Tuesday: Space: Build a LEGO Radar  model and go outside with our bottle rockets for a rocket challenge while learning about space and forces
  • Wednesday: Superheros & Slime: Today we will build a motorised super hero car while investigating materials to defend our super hero cave, we’ll make slime and ooblek ( a different kind of slime!) and learn about different kinds of liquids.
  • Thursday: Construction Site: Today we will understand the maths and science of lifting thinks and build a giant LEGO crane. Our afternoon will will be a lifting and moving challenge.

Who are the camps for?

  • The camps are aimed at children aged 6 to 9.
