« on: August 03, 2012, 06:03:54 AM »
Dear Families,

Does your child love to play with Legos?  Jackson Heights Enrichment Academy is offering a Pre-Engineering class this fall for children ages 6-8.  If you would like more information about this class, please read the description below or contact me at

Many thanks,

Alexis Andrews
Jackson Heights Enrichment Academy

LEGO® Pre-Engineering:  Simple Machines (Ages 6-8)
Why does my bike have gears?  How does a lever help us lift heavy things?  These are some of the questions we will answer as we learn about engineering and the simple machines that are hidden inside every complex machine.  Students will work in pairs with LEGO kits to construct models that use gears, wheels, axles, pulleys and levers.   We will also develop our math and engineering skills through problem solving challenges.  The activities are adapted from lessons developed by LEGO Education and Tufts University.
Please note—this is NOT a robotics class.
·      Schedule:  Once a week—Thursdays, 4:45-5:45

·      Length:  10 weeks, 9/20/12 to 11/29/12 (no class Thanksgiving)

·      Tuition Fee: $175

·      Materials Fee:  $10

·      Location: Jackson Heights Early Learning Center-Annex, 79-10 34th Ave.
