Tech Academy (formerly Computer Explorers) of Minnesota - Summer STEM Camps, over 100 location in MN ages 4-15
Lego Engineering Summer Tech Camp Courses

Engineering: Solar, Hydro & Wind Powered Camp


About this Camp:
Combine engineering and alternative energy (solar, hydro, and wind)! Build cars, cranes, drawbridges, etc., from LEGO® kits and operate them using alternative energy sources. Students working in teams will experiment with wind, water, and solar panels, resulting in a high-powered, high-energy course! Projects include waterwheel, windmill, Ferris wheel, and solar car. Students achieve an understanding of how energy is developed from the sun, wind, and water. Solar energy can be captured by the LEGO® Solar Cell and used to power their models. Students will use the concepts they learned to design and create a test car to compete against their classmates on the last day. Students will be working in small teams of 2-3.
