BRICKS 4 KIDZ - San Francisco
As parents, we strive to provide our children with every opportunity for a future in STEM fields. Girls (and boys) are more likely to pursue a STEM career if they have a positive STEM class or teacher experience at a young age. Bricks 4 Kidz San Francisco is especially passionate about engaging K-5 girls in STEM concepts by using specific programming geared towards their unique needs and interests.
We are currently offering girls-only programs with our school partners. Why a girls-only program?
- To assist in boosting girls’ self-esteem (girls’ self-esteem decreases with age, while boys’ self-esteem stays the same)
- To provide young girls with a productive outlet, as the curriculum is designed with girls’ experiences and interests in mind
- To provide positive female role-models; the program is run by women and includes information on successful women in STEM fields
- To provide a community of women, both peers and mentors, whom girls can engage with
Our programs provide a creative atmosphere for students to build unique creations, play games, and have loads of fun while using LEGO® Bricks. We encourage students to explore engineering concepts and principles through hands-on model building. The activities are designed to trigger young children’s lively imaginations and build their self-confidence.
Come join the creativity and fun!
You can find our latest events on Red Tricycle and Mommy Nearest. Our friend at Mommy Nearest listed us as one of the 6 great “tinkering activities in the Bay Area” to check out. We were also spotlighted about our passion to create a fun environment to encourage young girls to take an interest in STEM.
