Students participating in the Galileo Technic program will learn to solve problems from a mechanical engineering perspective, using their new math and physics skills.
Students work in groups to improve their construction skills by building complex models.
Galileo Technic provides an advanced level of thematic study, implementing mechanical engineering principles through exciting model building.
In each lesson, students will build a new machine, for which they will have analyzed all aspects of its operation, e.g., gear ratios. Students will graduate from the Galileo Technic program with new skills in science, technology, mechanical engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Galileo Technic's curriculum
The Galileo Technic program builds on the introductory level of math, physics and engineering that was taught in the Bricks Challenge program. Students will learn new engineering terms and principles.
Galileo Technic teaches engineering mechanisms such as:
