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, and more 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 a waterwheel, windmill, Ferris wheel, and solar car. Students will learn 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.
