LEGO Design, Build and Innovation 1M22 Ages 6-8
DEILAB delivers exciting fun and engaging hands-on project based learning with LEGO as a tool to teach design, engineering and innovation concepts. Students will build a variety of creative art projects, skyscrapers, race cars and motorized battle and more in this STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) innovation program.
This hands-on program focuses on rapid prototyping idea generation, and testing. The class is structured to enhance curiosity and ignite ingenuity while connecting students to real-world applications.
DEILab visits the Eliot School each summer with LEGO and robotics classes for kids. Its curriculum is based on mechanical, artistic, architectural design and engineering projects.
"DEILab (pronounced "day-lab") was founded on the belief that art, design, science and technology will trigger a culture of innovation critical to our ability to compete on a world stage. Our labs focus on idea generation (ideation), iteration (prototyping), as tools for innovation using hands on LEGO projects as an activating agent in the chain of events. The programming fans out into corporate labs for adults, and summer camps, and after school labs for children and young adults."
