Program Description

Thursdays, October 18-December 13, 2018
Wednesdays, January 9-June 19, 2019

Imagine, balance, construct and combine materials to engineer
an exciting mini city. Students learn about physics and connecting
techniques they can use to support their structures. Elements of
colour, pattern, and recycled materials encourage students to get
creative. Focus can be adjusted—perhaps a realistic, futuristic or
environmentally sensitive city could fit your curriculum.
