For elementary students completing the Goblin build, students learn critical lessons in areas such as tool use and safety, effective communication, time management, critical thinking, and teamwork.
Goblin participants learn foundational concepts necessary for understanding the purpose and structure of technical schematic layouts through the build process, basics of aerodynamics through the body design, and the general nature of team project completion.
At this level, the teacher is giving close supervision and direction for each new learning set, as is developmentally appropriate. The focus of the Goblin build is on teaching students to work collaboratively and understand foundational concepts in STEM.
