Suitable for upper primary and high school students
Galileo Technic takes students to the next level in STEM education. Students continue to build motorised LEGO® models – but the scale and complexity of the model increases significantly. Students will:
✓ Learn advanced physics concepts and explore known concepts at a deeper level
✓ Learn new maths and mechanical engineering principles
✓ Use long chains of gears in machine design
✓ Greater emphasis on teamwork and collaboration
✓ Learn to test and troubleshoot their machines – just like real engineers!
Overview of Galilieo Technic Sessions
All sessions follows the Learn-Prototype-Experiment-Imagine format.
✓ Learn – the STEM concepts through stories and anecdotes
✓ Prototype – a LEGO® model that applies the concept in a real-world setting
✓ Experiment – modifying the completed model can be scary yet satisfying. Children are encouraged to take risks to learn cause-consequences.
✓ Imagine – children are challenged to think outside the box to imagine the possibilities of their creations.
