Grades: 3rd - 6th

Lesson duration: 90 minutes

Students that are participating in Young Engineers’ Galileo Technic program will learn how to problem solve from an engineering perspective, using their new math and physics skills. Students work in groups to enhance their team building skills, and therefore they are required to construct complex models.

 

Galileo Technic provides an advanced level of thematic study, by implementing mechanical engineering principles through building LEGO® bricks models. Students will build an efficient machine (model) as they have analyzed all aspects of how the machine operates e.g. the gear ratios.

 

Students will graduate the Galileo Technic program with new skills in Science, Technology, Mechanical Engineering, and Math (STEM).

 

This is an in-depth program to extend the "Young Engineers - Bricks Challenge" program

Syllabus

Introducing students to new engineering terms while implementing all Bricks Challenge subjects.


The course will give a new overview of the following engineering mechanisms: Multi-channel transmission systems, mechanical coordination, the movement of a body on a rotational axis, center of gravity and fulcrum, different ratchet implementations, energy depletion, recycling, limited transmission belt implementations. Statistics: probability, percentages and fair games, semi-automatic launching mechanism, parallel working, radar, axial steering, differential and differential lock systems.
