LEGO®-Inspired Engineering Camps for Kids K-8
Did you know the name ‘LEGO’ is an abbreviation of the two Danish words “leg godt”, meaning “play well”. It’s true! Although LEGO seems completely American to many the LEGO Group was founded in Denmark in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen!
The SCC is pleased to offer a week of Play-Well TEKnologies summer camp that will:
- Develop and enhance students’ problem solving and critical thinking skills
- Expose children to concepts and vocabulary of Engineering, Architecture and Physics
- Provide an opportunity to have a great time with a terrific and versatile building system
- The Pre-Engineering summer camps are primarily focused on BUILDING techniques
