In our after-school classes, students are able to design and construct machines, buildings and other models using LEGO® bricks and our proprietary design and plans. Instructional content includes concepts of friction, gravity, torque, scale, gears, axles, and beams.
Schools we’ve offered after-school enrichment or are currently in:
- Birchwood ABC
- Rilke Schule
Classes follow the Bricks 4 Kidz® motto: We Learn, We Build, We Play with . . . LEGO® Bricks.
We Learn…Our trained, screened Bricks 4 Kidz® teachers lead a discussion related to the day’s model, using materials designed by educators to teach concepts across a variety of subject areas. Students will learn about everything from gears, torque and friction, to geography, space exploration, weather and MORE!
We Build…Students experience the hands-on fun of model building, from concept to completion. All of our models are designed by Bricks 4 Kidz® model designer, so you won’t find them on the shelves of your local toy store.
We Play…Free-play time rounds out the hour, giving students an opportunity to develop their own creativity.
Benefits of the Bricks 4 Kidz® Program…
- Reinforce math and science concepts
- Develop an appreciation for how things work
- Build self-confidence and problem solving skills
- Foters teamwork
- Trigger student’s imagination
- Provide a safe, enriching place to create and play
