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. Learn more about our programs’ developmental benefits and goals.
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.
