It is the Lego "Great Ball Contraption." The goal is to build a machine (or series of machines) to move balls from one place to another. I know that sounds lame, but check out this website LEGO-Great-Ball-Contraption-GBC | LEGO-GBC or do a search for some U tube videos on the "Great Ball Contraption." http://blog.makezine.com/archive/200...C-0D6B48984890 It is really kind of an early engineering type class only the kids get to use legos which makes them think it is just totally playtime.

Sounds a little like an Odyssey of the Mind problem. Thanks for the link, my boys will LOVE it!

I don't think that sounds lame at all. Sounds pretty neat to me!

How do they "teach" the class? And does the co-op supply the legos? I am thinking this might be a great class idea for our Co-op but would like some details on how the class is run, etc, if you don't mind.....
