It’s hug time! The trolls are having fun and causing mischief again! Can you help your troll friends engineer and design adventures while also keeping them safe from the Bergens? Each day your trolls will find themselves in new and challenging situations. It’s up to you to create exciting escapades by building contraptions and devices for your troll friends’ to avoid the Bergens!
ONLINE CLASS FORMAT
- Your nerd will be participating in a 50-minute teacher led virtual environment using Zoom. Nerds will share their clever ideas and projects with 4-7 other students and celebrate their escapades together!
- They will then work independently for 1 additional hour building and testing their design.
- By enrolling in this class they will also unlock the day-by-day course materials below which will supplement their learning outside of the live Zoom session.
This is a good fit for…
Inventive nerds who love adventure and want to imagine and create fun missions for their troll friends! Each day we’ll invent new expeditions for our trolls to embark on and design awesome creations to celebrate freedom from the Bergens!
What Nerds Learn:
This class is perfect for nerds who like to brainstorm imaginative designs and create clever solutions using the engineering process. We’ll construct and explore with everyday household materials. As well as learn how to innovate our constructs using basic principles of engineering to discover exciting ways to succeed in our challenges each day!
In addition to learning about the engineering process your nerd will learn to persevere as they test and improve upon their creations. We’ll practice redesigning when something doesn’t work as intended so that nerds will learn the benefit of “try and try again”.
As a class we’ll talk about continuous improvement strategies and discovering ways to make our amazing designs even better. Your nerd will also interact with fellow kids who have similar creative interests. Watch as they make new friends and cheer each other on!
Over the course of 5 days nerds will face unique daily challenges including:
- Making their own adorable trolls
- Constructing a hanging troll home
- Helping their troll escape the tunnel maze
- Building a hug machine
Gain New Nerd Skills!
Successful nerds are curious learners who enjoy building and experimenting to maximize the awesomeness of their creations! Nerds will continually share their clever ideas and projects with the class as we go.
Your child will be participating in a live 50-minute teacher led virtual portion of the class, and will then work independently for 1 hour building and testing their troll designs. This class is best suited for 2nd-5th graders.
After the completion of this class your nerd will be able to describe the engineering process and understand the broader use of this process in their school, their teams, and in their life!
