Lego Car Rally (Mechanical Engineering) – 8+

Amy FitzgeraldClass: Lego Car Rally ( Mechanical Engineering) – 8+. Hands-on outreach class at the MIT Edgerton Center. We need a Minimum of 12 students and a maximum of 24 for this class.

Description: In LEGO Car Rally students are challenged to build cars from LEGO bricks that are tested on a ramp course to see how far they will travel, and on a “Tiltboard” to demonstrate their Center of Gravity. In the activity students are encouraged to: systematically alter variables as they modify their cars, consider trade-offs between different design elements, and consider the effects of friction and center of gravity. This fun activity provides students with hands-on, mechanical engineering design experience.

Time: 10:00 – 1:00

Location: MIT Edgerton Center – 77 Mass Ave. Cambridge, Room 4-402 (fourth floor)

Age: This activity is appropriate for students aged 8 and up. Children must be able to function in the classroom independently. The size of the classroom does not allow for parents to remain in the room during class. You are, however,  welcome to wait quietly in the hall outside the classroom if you need to be immediately available for your children. In addition there are also plenty of interns available to help the kids through the activities.

Travel Tips: Visitor parking in the MIT-Kresge parking lot is limited. Permits can be purchased for $26.00 by completing and submitting the PDF form at least five days in advance. The other MIT Visitors lots rates are varied. Also available is metered parking which is obviously first come first serve. I have been told that you will be ticketed if you park at a meter for more than two hours, after two hours you need to change spaces.
