You don’t have to be an adult to be a Gangplanker. Gangplank Junior exists to allow students to learn and explore with the freedom to fail. The program  includes activities for  preschool through 20 year olds. We take education back to its roots, encouraging real world, hands on learning with experienced professionals. Gangplank Jr encourages children to use their imaginations to problem solve, create solutions and implement them, without the pressure of performance.

Exploring Gravity with LEGO Cars

Cars are built and designed to serve the needs of our society, the move our world.  They might move people like busses, move our things like trucks, help firemen fight fires or help doctors save people. Some are designed to go fast, others drive far and some need to do a little of everything. In this exciting course, we’ll become car designers ourselves, building LEGO®   cars for weekly challenges and go head-to-head in competitive events. How many ways can you use LEGO® wheels and tires?  We’ll find out when we “Observe How We Move”. This free event is open to the community.This free event is open to the community.
