If you could create your own city what would it have? Would there be a playground? How would you get from place to place? Where would you live? Let your imagination run wild and create your very own city in this four-session workshop series using LEGO® bricks!


Week 1: Where We Live- participants will plan and build a place to live using LEGO® bricks and pieces.

Week 2: Where We Play - participants will work in groups to plan, design, and build their version of a playground with legos.

Week 3: How We Move - participants will learn about the different methods people use to get from point A to point B. They will then plan and build a mode of transportation using LEGO® bricks and pieces.

Week 4: How We Connect -  participants will learn about different bridges, then work in groups to design and build a bridge out of LEGO® bricks for their city. Students are encouraged to be creative and use as many different patterns as they can. Once they complete their bridge, they will do a weight test to see how sturdy each bridge is.
