Lego Technic ElectroEngineers

Youth Workshop by Christopher Watson (Mr) 🎟

Saturday from 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM in Youth Workshop

For Kids, AFOL's (adult fan of lego), I would like to bring a few tubs of cleaned, loose lego technic (cogs, gears, axels, wheels etc) and create a continous chain of connected creations. I've made examples of logic gates AND OR NOT that I can explain computer science, Archimedes screw, pistons, scissor lifts, engines, gears/ratios, motors/generators, water turbines, conveyor belts and whatever else people can imagine. I love to see them add to it each day and have this long connected machine using all the above and explain where each item is used in every day situations. I'd like this to grow into a live installation, people could label their part like a exhibition of their skill. If possible, it would be great to try make parts of it a marble run. I have lots of wheels, they can have a contest on the last day of who can make their car travel the furthest down a ramp, or balloon/elastic band powered. I want them to have fun building and seeing things connected, but I'd like to show examples where what they've built takes place. Maybe I could squeeze a bit of my science knowledge of what's going on in too. I'll keep tweaking this but I wanted to get this idea through to you and I'm happy for suggestions, tweaks. But I'd love to run this and build this continuous connected machine. I hope you like it. I'd love to run it.
