BRICKS 4 KIDZ® – Pennsylvania – Westmoreland County

Our programs provide an extraordinary atmosphere for students to learn new concepts, expand their knowledge base, build unique creations, play games, and have loads of fun using LEGO® bricks. The activities are designed to trigger young children’s lively imaginations and build their self-confidence.  The Bricks 4 Kidz® Program introduces complex science, engineering, technology, and math (STEM) concepts in age-appropriate, fun manners.  We utilize professionally-developed curriculum – created by engineers, architects and educators – to learn, build, and play. 

 

Our programs provide a safe, relaxed learning environment where initiative is invited and self-expression is celebrated.  Model building provides opportunities for problem-solving and helps kids develop an appreciation for how things work. All this takes place while kids are having fun and socializing in a non-competitive atmosphere.
