Playing Well At Accenture, Oracle, and K12

At Accenture, we were asked us to show some of the employees’ children what it would be like to be a engineering consultant.  We provided these future consultants an engineering dilemma, various mechanisms to figure it out, and let them break up in teams and go to work.  The results were these mini-engineering consultants came up with a brand new invention.  A vehicle that could traverse across three separate types of terrain, ground, rail, and air.

The challenge was creating a vehicle that could traverse over three terrains. Ground, track, and through the air. These young engineering consultants accomplished their task in less than 1.5 hours.

These future engineering consultants accomplished their task in less than 1.5 hours.

Oracle 2

We provide a interactive LEGO area for kids during Oracle Kid’s Day. Kids built motorized LEGO projects, as well as architectural ones.

Many engineers brought their kids to the National Building Museum for our LEGO architecture workshop. There, we built a 21ft. tall tower with students, while showing them basic building techniques we use in our architectural projects.

At K12.com‘s Bring Your Kids To Work Day this year, students built a 10ft Tall LEGO Tower. Then, we tested it.
