Westwood Christian School

with Bricks 4 Kidz exclusive curriculum

Description:

This is a hands-on class where students build machines, buildings, vehicles and other structures out of LEGO® Bricks, using one-of-a-kind model plans designed by Bricks 4 Kidz®. Each class begins with a teacher-led discussion related to the model of the day. Students build a new project each week. While exploring principles of engineering, architecture, physics and more, students will develop problem solving and critical thinking skills. Once the project is complete, children use the rest of their time to modify their model builds and collaborate with one another.

Duration/frequency/cost:

The program runs throughout the school year in 6-class packages called Sessions. Classes meet every TUESDAY, starting January 24, 2017. Each class is priced at $20. Payments are collected on a Session Package based (6-classes) of $120. In order to save your child’s spot in the program you must register him/her for the entire session, single class payments are not allowed and we have a No-refund policy for non-attendance to any scheduled class.

Curriculum and instructional content:

  • Students will work in a lab-type setting using LEGO® components such as gears, axles and beams.
  • Instructional content is multi-disciplinary and designed by educators to increase the student’s general knowledge and introduce S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts related to the day’s model. Lessons are designed around students’ interests, with themes such as animals, space, transportation and sports. The material covered in each session will vary depending upon students’ age, experience, and skill level.
  • All materials are provided

Goals:

  • To build problem-solving skills, provide an opportunity for creative expression and foster an appreciation for how things work.
  • For students to play and socialize with friends while learning the fundamentals of engineering and architecture in a non-competitive setting.
  • To help students understand that architecture and engineering are viable career choices.

Benefits:

  • When lessons are related to something students enjoy, such as building with LEGO® Bricks, students are motivated and retain more of what they learn.
  • Working with a partner fosters teamwork and cooperation.
  • Completing a new challenge each week builds self-esteem.
  • Students already know how to build with LEGO® Bricks, however with a little coaching, they can learn about engineering, architecture, physics, and math using specialized components.
