Students explore engineering through the use of Lego, and try their hand at designing, building and racing their own vehicles in a fun competition.

We will visit your school with enough Lego for every pupil to create their very own vehicle. Using their planning and designing skills, pupils will compete against each other to create a competition-winning design.
