ong>Week-Long Summer Camp at American Legion Post 233

LOGANVILLE, GA – This summer, from June 15th to June 19th, American Legion Post 233 is hosting a week long summer camp for children ages 5 through 12.  The camp is organized by Play-Well Teknologies.   Using LEGOs, Play-Well will help the young creators explore fundamental principles of engineering and physics while building elaborate objects, structures and vehicles.  

Campers will typically work on 2 different engineering and architectural projects per day. Projects typically start with an introduction and short presentation by the instructor followed by a design/building assignment. Students have access to approximately 100,000 pieces of LEGO materials to use in creating their engineering projects.  Students are introduced to engineering terminology that they are encouraged to use throughout the class when identifying pieces, posing questions, or assisting each other. Instructors circulate and assist the children in realizing their project goals.  When the participants have satisfied basic requirements of a project, they are encouraged to further explore engineering applications of the principles and construction methods by inspecting, testing, modifying, and rebuilding. 

The camp day is broken into two age groups with ages 5-7 from 9:00am to 12:00p and ages 7-12 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.  The cost of registration is $175 per child for the week.  For more information and/or to register your child visit www.play-well.org.
