Micro-Build with LEGO Bricks! Afternoon session Ages 6-12

Because we have so many on the waiting list, we are opening a second session on the same day.  Thank you, Trish!

Study the effect of scale with a teeny tiny microbuild.  Using just a few pieces, the participant will create tiny vehicles and a tiny building.  LEGO minifigs are giants in this realm!  Includes a take home vehicle and building kit.

Note from Trish: This is going to be so much fun!  In addition to a tiny automobile and a tiny plane... there will be a group build of a micro-building.

I have found an image of a building that is multi-story and very unusual in shape.  The participants will each use the building for inspiration, and create some part of the building - they will adjust the colors to their own tastes.  The tricky part will be trying to put the parts together at the end into a fantastical, one of a kind micro-building!

There will be a bit of commerce and each child will be provided with a series of certificates which can be exchanged for pre-packaged parts of various colors and shapes.

It should be huge fun!  I am so looking forward to this!

Note: This class is at Resurrection Lutheran, 1900 E. Carson (at Cherry)

    I love Trish's energy and teaching style. She introduces concepts and challenges and allows the kids plenty of time to come up with their own creations. Rachel can't wait for the next meeting. Thank you, Trish!

    If anyone has a few duplo bricks I can borrow for the session, I'd like to roll them into the conversation. we'll only need one family to loan some bricks for the day, don't want everyone's bricks to get confused.

    great!my son was so energized after. i'm not really clear on the focus of the class.

      Jennifer, we did some discussions on scale and perspective, measured some brick and some storage brick, as well as duplo brick. It helped to understand ratios. Then we built scale buildings in micro scale. So we had some math (ratios) some geometry (discussed the geometry of some of the bricks) and a whole lot of creative thought and expression! The beauty of this is that they don't even know they were learning!
