This is an advanced class. Students should be comfortable building Technic models.
Clocks are a wonderful balance of mechanics and efficiency. Learning how they work and getting to build a clock is a unique experience within the world of complex machines. Our class explores the mechanics of a weight driven clock that uses a pendulum and escapement mechanism to control the clocks timing.
Class begins with instruction and discussion followed by a custom Dallas Bricks clock model build. Our models include step-by-step instruction, after which the students are encouraged to creatively modify and add to their model.
This class is packed with one and a half hours of instruction, building and mechanical concepts.
