Amusement Park Thrill Rides & Stop Motion Animation

For Campers entering grades 2-3

Become a master amusement park designer as we create LEGO Amusement Thrill Rides. Students will use STEM principles to create and modify Merry Go Rounds, Teacups Rides, Tilt A Whirl, bumper cars and more. Before each lesson will use gears and motors to learn about mechanical devices such as levers, wheels, and axles. In addition, students will use Sandbox games to design and create their own space station. Students will build rockets, solar panels and living quarters to survive their journey. In the afternoon, students will create their own mini movie set, learn the parts of a story and create an animated movie using LEGO mini figures and other objects. The students will also learn how to edit their films, attach music, and add titles/credits using Professional Stop Animation software.
