Sail Car using LEGO BricQ

My kids love LEGO bricks and STEM. For that reason LEGO education was the perfect addition to our playroom. They spend hours playing and learning about different STEAM topics. Besides learning it also promotes collaboration, communication and problem solving. Kids learn while they play and don't even notice it! So much fun!

BUILDING A SAIL CAR


QUESTIONS TO ASK

Facilitate a discussion about how wind is a force that pushes and pulls, and how sails are shaped to capture that force most effectively. Ask questions, like: How does a sail car move? (The wind pushes it.) Can you see the wind? (No, but you can see the effects of the wind.) If the students need a little guidance, help them by asking: How many different sail shapes did you see in the video? Which shape and size sail do you think will work best?
