DECEMBER – JANUARY

TWO DAY WORKSHOPS ($180)

Brick City Engineers

Monday 8 January – Tuesday 9 January ✷ 9am – 4pm

Let’s build a CITY! There are many different types of engineering jobs, and building is one of the most fun!

What would a city be without the architects and engineers who come up with the ideas, plans and building skills to make it all come together?

Children will put their engineering and architecture skills to work as they build city themed models using LEGO® Bricks. The sky’s the limit when campers are challenged to use their own ideas and skills to build a skyscraper taller than their heads! They’ll have a blast using custom-built cars to move the people of the city all around town – brick by brick!

What an accomplishment to be able to proudly exclaim “We built this BRICK City!”
