Lego Engineering: Engineering Concepts

This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.


This program teaches basic engineering concepts, problem solving and teamwork. Engineering Concepts covers basic simple machines and is the foundation for the other topics. We investigate gears, pulleys, cams, levers, ratchets, and many other geek-chic topics by building such things as street sweepers, hammers, fishing rods and scales.

About Wicked Cool for Kids:
Wicked Cool for Kids provides on-site customized enrichment programs for elementary and middle school kids that are affordable to most parents. Our clients range from recreation departments and schools to other community-based organizations.

Our comprehensive programs are managed locally in a haul-in / haul-out, leave-no-trace, soup-to-nuts format that challenges kids to investigate their world through science, art, and technology. We base our programs on three fundamental principles – Learning, Fun and Safety. Every member of our program staff is background-checked and trained in both curriculum and safety procedures. We work closely with our clients to follow every protocol to safeguard the children in our care. Our curriculum is structured around an experiential environment where we engage kids in challenging activities.
Our staff are encouraged to be kid-centered rather than curriculum centered, so that kids are always stimulated and on task at their own level and pace. Our model of instruction is based on this activity-based, fun atmosphere. We offer a wide selection of year-around after-school programs as well as vacation programs.

We add new topics every season so that all our clients, whether new or long-standing, can always find something fresh to offer kids. Our after-school programs typically stand apart from other activities but can be integrated into school and extended-day programs. We have been serving kids since 2007 in partnership with in excess of 100 clients.
Another way to think of it – we’ve provided brain stimulation for more than 8000 kids since we began.

Goals and Objectives:
  • Aligns with next generation science standards: Engineering design.
  • Improve collaboration and teamwork skills by working with partners
