Welcome to BRICKS 4 KIDZ®Manhattan!!

DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM

  • This is a hands-on class where students will design and build machines, catapults, pyramids, derby cards, buildings and other constructions out of LEGO® bricks. While exploring engineering, architecture and physics, students will develop problem solving and critical thinking skills.
  • Participants build a new project each month. Architectural concepts are taught while assembling buildings, bridges and other structures.
  • Once the project is completed, children use the rest of their time to expand their gadgets and collaborate with one another

CURRICULUM & INSTRUCTIONAL CONTENT

  • Students will work in a lab-type setting using LEGO® bricks with an integrated curriculum based on math and science.
  • Instructional content includes concepts of friction, gravity and torque, scale, gears, axles and beams.
  • Part of the curriculum will include the construction of a scaled model of their elementary school.
  • The material covered each session will vary depending on students’ ages, experience, and skill level.
  • All material will be provided.

GOALS

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

BENEFITS

  • Kids already know how to build with LEGO® bricks, but with a little coaching they can learn engineering, architecture and concepts of physics and mathematics using the plastic components.
  • Students will develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
