course, kids take on fun, kinetic challenges every week that


demonstrate-in real time-principles of engineering, architecture,

and invention. They'll flex their imaginations, engage in creative problem

solving, take pride in their work, and gain mastery over "the brick" in

new and exciting ways!

A message from Aaron:

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be teaching you—

sharing my love for LEGO & learning with you.

We’re gonna have so much fun together, and I so look forward to seeing

your creativity in action.

I’ve been teaching STEAM concepts through LEGO for several years, and I have

worked predominantly with kids in kindergarten through

eighth grade. I’ve taught on both coasts, and developed

lots of tricks for keeping kids involved in a lesson.

My dream job when I was growing up (and now!) was to become a

LEGO product designer.

Improvements:

My son won one of the Kahoot games in the Roblox Medieval May class and never received the $10 Robux gift card that was promised in the course. Otherwise, he enjoyed the class.
