Jr. Engineering with LEGO: Hurricanes
Kids · Learning
Make amazing LEGO® creations! There are no instruction booklets in this class – you will use your imagination to build these structures while learning the engineering behind them. So while your buildings will look cool on the outside, they will be rock-solid on the inside, ready to withstand an onslaught from earthquakes, boulders, and even hurricanes. You may participate with whatever Lego you currently have available at your location. Our instructor will be using our base Lego Kit which consists of 160 2X4 Bricks (one color), 350 2X4 Bricks (another color), and 1 16X32 base plate. Ascendly is a social enterprise dedicated to teaching kids, at an early age, about how things work.

My brother loved the idea of a skyscraper! 4 stars! (also phenomenal with kids!)
My son really enjoyed the session, but being a younger one (age 5), he was really disappointed to not be able to share his in the end. I understand there are a lot of kids on the zoom and tried to explain that to him. I encouraged him to join next week\'s session again.
Both my daughters absolutely loved the session. Will be there next week:)
