LEGO and science go together like peanut butter and jelly, or like Batman and Robin. They are the perfect match. I write about LEGO Learning and focus on fun resources for raising boys who love to learn. Natalie and I both like the learning aspects of LEGO and I thought of her site’s science focus when putting together this post. LEGO is one of the very best creativity boosters that we own. I even like designing some LEGO builds when I have a few spare minutes. It is a very satisfying experience. Sometimes I enjoy finding a few things that we might not think about doing, like these wonderful LEGO Science ideas.
LEGO Learning: Science
- Go on a LEGO Scavenger Hunt by freezing LEGO pieces in a baking soda and vinegar solution. Learn about a basic chemical reaction. Super fizzy fun.
- Try a float/sink experiment by building a LEGO boat. You can use this post of inspiration. For older kids, encourage them to create boats in different shapes and sizes for testing.
- Natalie has such a neat activity right here on her site: Rev up your engines and build a LEGO Egg Racer. I love this idea and can’t wait to try it with my son.
- We are big into catapults at my house. I sometimes need to peak into a room before walking through to make sure the coast is clear. Create your own LEGO catapult and learn a bit about mechanical engineering. We built the catapult with rubber bands and it is a winner.
- How about a bit of science learning surrounding force, gravity and slopes? This LEGO Zip Line is perfect for it and so entertaining.
- Last, but certainly not least, is the super awesome LEGO Rocket Powered Car. A chemical reaction forces the car to shoot forward 20 to almost 35 feet. Exciting!
