During the five day camp children will complete projects that explore energy supply, transfer, accumulation, conversation and consumption. Instructor Nicholas Lach has been working at the lego camps for almost a decade. He enjoyed instructing the camps so much he changed his career to teaching. “It definitely challenges them in ways different than classrooms, they do have the interaction with other kids but they also learn how everyday machines work, how they’re built, how they're designed,” Lach said.
