We recently had so much fun running our new JEDI Engineering w/LEGO program. Our instructors that are Star Wars nerds are really into teaching these programs, getting kids excited about the world of Star Wars, and answering what role engineers played in creating this world.
We ask our students, “who do you think built the X-Wing, Tie Fighter, Millenium Falcon, Death Star, Imperial Cruiser, Clone Troopers, and even the Jedi Academy? Engineers.” Then as engineers, we begin to reconstruct the world and story lines of Star Wars through our LEGO building.
Check out some pictures from a JEDI Engineering camp we recently held in Ventura County, CA.

A LEGO battle droid model and a X-Wing prototype welcomed these Jedi Engineers to the camp.
