Robotics Build

We use laptops and LEGO bricks to design, build, and program a robotic model. It’s one our favorite scouting activities that brings technology and building toys together in a cohesive fashion.

Star Wars Challenge

If your scouts enjoy the world of Star Wars, then this is the activity for you! Kids get the opportunity to design a light saber out of LEGO bricks to withstand several challenges. It’s the perfect scouting event for little Luke’s and Leia’s.

Engineering Challenge

We put engineering thoughts and practices in action! Using LEGO bricks and Snapology’s builds, we create a simple machine, such as a catapult, crane or windmill. Earn a scouting badge, pin or award with this event!

Robot Challenge

Just like in the Robot Build event, we design and program robots to complete a goals by using LEGO bricks and simple remotes and sensors. That’s right- your scouts will  build a robot that can complete different challenges. They’ll love this one!


In the Animation event, we use LEGO bricks and stop-motion animation software to create our own stories. Your scouts will be involved in the entire process from beginning to end. It’s a nice scouting activity you can take home.

Amusement Park Engineering

Use LEGO bricks and Snapology’s design plans to engineer rides that work with actual motors. Scouts will be split to work on different builds to create a full amusement park by the end of the session. Talk about a fun time!
