ABOUT BRICKS 4 KIDZ® CLEVELAND, OHIO
Bricks4Kidz® is a creative learning enterprise that provides an extraordinary atmosphere for students to build unique creations, play games, and have loads of fun playing with LEGO® bricks. There are many educational, developmental and social benefits in our approach to learning. These lessons are hidden in fun activities with options for every age level.
Through after-school programs, pre-school classes, in-school field trips and camps, students will experience hands-on engineering fundamentals as they build motorized models. We provide a curriculum that introduces children to engineering, architecture and scientific principles while important skills such as sequencing, following step-by-step directions and spacial/relational thinking are developed. Fine motor skills blossom as children pick up and assemble the many small bricks and gears. The more advanced student can sign up for stop-motion animation, junior robotics or mindstorm robotics.
Playing with LEGO® bricks is highly motivating, so children are more likely to retain information that is delivered in the context of activities that interests them. Patience, communication and teamwork are exercised in the process of completing a project and working though frustration helps build self-esteem. Organizational skills are established by keeping the bricks in their proper place. This translates into every area of life in the form of efficiency.
At Bricks4Kidz®, we teach kids in a way that can’t be taught with a book and chalkboard.
