Brick City Engineers – 9.00 am – 3.30 pm

Enrol Now

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!”

The BEST School Holiday Activity with LEGO Bricks, Robotics and Coding in Melbourne!

See your child’s passion’s ignite as we awaken their imagination and curiosity with our specially-designed BRICKS 4 KIDZ LEGO® Models and Coding Programs.

Our kids not only develop the benefits from being immersed in a hands on activity as they build, but also bridge the physical world, represented by our models and the virtual world of computers and programming software.

Using the latest cutting edge LEGO® Robotics and Technic pieces such as gears, axles, and electric motors, the kids are always having fun combining both scientific and artistic exploration that harness problem-solving and critical thinking skills.

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

Children of all aptitudes will enjoy a new adventure every workshop built around exciting themes like Amusement Parks, Space, Robotics and many more.

DEVELOP SKILLS
