I had originally found out about this class from a friend of mine who home schools her son. One day she said, "Oh, gotta get going! We have our Lego class!" "Lego class?!?!?" I thought. "That sounds like to coolest thing ever!" So, I checked it out - and sure enough, Play-Well TEKnologies is all over the place - so I bet there is a class or camp near you. Here's their website:

We just signed our son up for Play-Well TEKnologies Lego camp again this summer. He had a blast last summer, and this time he is taking the class with a friend - added bonus!! If your child likes building things - this is the camp for them! You get to "design and build motorized machines, catapults, pyramids, demolition derby cards, buildings and other constructions out of LEGO® bricks. While exploring engineering, architecture and physics, students will develop problem solving and critical thinking skills." The instructors bring in 1000s of LEGO® bricks, wheels, motors, you name it (all immaculately organized, I might add), and the kids learn all sorts of engineering and physics concepts.
