Young engineers used their ingenuity – and a large pile of Lego bricks – to build working models of theme parks and cranes at a half-term workshop.

A group of 25 children spent a week learning how to build motorised structures using the popular toy at the London Jewish Cultural Centre (LJCC), at Ivy House, in North End Road, Golders Green, last week. At the end of the course, the children received a certificate and a small Lego gift.

The workshops were delivered by e2 young engineers with the help of an observer from the LJCC’s Fusion team.

Fusion’s director Laurence Field said: “The team were amazed at the participants’ vision and manual dexterity and also at their understanding of the mechanics required to make their inventions mobile.

“This was a week which showed just how creative young people can be.”
