lego car rallyClass: Motorized LEGO® Car Rally ( Mechanical Engineering) – For this hands-on outreach class at the MIT Edgerton Center. We need a Minimum of 12 students and a maximum of 24.

Description: Motorized LEGO® Car Rally ( Mechanical Engineering) – Pairs of students are challenged to build a slow car using a motorized-LEGO kit. Students begin with a bicycle-building activity which introduces the concepts of gearing down and gear ratios. They utilize this  knowledge to design a car capable of low speeds. The cars are timed on a course to see how slow they can go, and students are encouraged to modify and alter their design throughout the lesson. This fun activity provides students with hands-on, mechanical engineering design experience.

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.
