Suitable for upper primary and high school students 

Galileo Technic takes students to the next level in STEM education. Students continue to build motorised LEGO® models – but the scale and complexity of the model increases significantly.  Students will: 

Learn advanced physics concepts and explore known concepts at a deeper level
Learn new maths and mechanical engineering principles
Use long chains of gears in machine design 
Greater emphasis on teamwork and collaboration
Learn to test and troubleshoot their machines – just like real engineers! 

Overview of Galilieo Technic Sessions

All sessions follows the Learn-Prototype-Experiment-Imagine format. 

Learn – the STEM concepts through stories and anecdotes 
Prototype – a LEGO® model that applies the concept in a real-world setting 
Experiment – modifying the completed model can be scary yet satisfying. Children are encouraged to take risks to learn cause-consequences.
✓ Imagine – children are challenged to think outside the box to imagine the possibilities of their creations.
