Things That Go: Building Motorized Models


Are you curious about how machines work?  Do you like designing, building and tinkering?  If so, join the internationally-acclaimed Young Engineers STEM Program as they teach you engineering concepts and challenge you to independently build a new motorized model each week using patented Lego blocks.  Students will learn about centrifugal and centripetal force, differential and traction control functioning in a car, and explore aerodynamics and Bernoulli’s Law. They will build working models of an SUV, Ferris Wheel, and rescue helicopter.

For 1st – 4th Grade Students

A New Adventure Every Weekend

MITY's program for elementary students enables inquisitive, high achieving 1st - 4th grade students to continue learning outside of the traditional classroom.  Courses are intentionally designed to inspire inquiry, activate imaginations, and engage eager learners in hands on discovery that is not possible within a regular classroom setting.  While students are in class, parents are invited to listen to professional speakers on topics related to raising bright children, socialize with other parents, or visit a local coffee shop.
