Overview of the OES Lego® Physics Program

The OES LEGO® Physics program is a multifaceted enterprise that engages participants from 3rd grade, through middle school, and beyond -- in the fun activity of playing with LEGOs® . The program was started in 1989 by Jane KN and has been going strong ever since.  For more on this see: The History of the OES LEGO® Physics Program.


The program consists of the following components:

  • After School Classes:  Construct a building, a bridge, build and race a zippy car, motorize a crane, make and program a writing machine, or invent, motorize, and program your own creations in one of the many after school classes.
  • Summer Programs: Come and build with us this summer in one of our themed programs tht range over Medieval structures, machines, moving vehicles, or robotics.

  • Building Events. ...
  • TA & Volunteer positions. ...

In addition to the basic skills of transforming 2-D technical depictions into 3-D objects, students practice working together in teams, and responsibly representing their work and the program as OES LEGO® professionals, including being ready to explain the theory of operation of simple machines and other constructions.

This spring's all-new Lego® Logo Board makes its debut!

Packy And Zuri: Hardhats At The Ready! makes a splash at the OES Spring School Show.


The OES Lego® Logo board is a 3'x6' wonderland of unique, student-designed, computer-controlled models. Starting with a blank blackboard, over 20 models were designed and built from scratch by the members of the Logo programming class. The display was integrated and programmed by these 6th, 7th, and 8th graders into a 3-minute long narrated story which made its public debut at the Spring Show for the OES students and faculty.

Packy And Zuri: Hardhats At The Ready will appear for public viewing at the upcoming Zoo show (June 4th and 5th), as well as the Clinton/Division Street Fair in July, and even the Public Exposition at Bricks Cascade in March, 2017!
