LEGO Creation Station

Project of the Month
Build a car that is powered by a rubber band.

 rubber band car

Note:  The gear in the back is used only as a catch for the rubber band to help it start wrapping around the axle. The bushing on the axle at the very front is to loop the rubber band around.

Questions:

  • How does the length or width of rubber band change how far the car can travel?
  • Why does having the rubber band come loose when it unwinds help the car continue to travel?
  • What is inertia?
  • How far did your car travel?

Take a picture and send it to us and we will post it on our website.

An interactive hands-on with a difference!

Using the LEGO educational robots, children will be able to find out how a robot really works. The programing itself is based on LEGO’s easily understandable computer program, whereby students intuitively use the simple ‘drag and drop’ icons to form their code. The party is built around a series of themes, dependent on ability and interest.

Themes

  • Sports
  • Battle Bots
  • Cars
  • Amazing Machines
  • LEGO Fun
  • or we will create one for your child

Limited to 14 children as a maximum

 Ages 5 – 14
