Bricks 4 Kidz after school enrichment programs are held at the elementary schools and each session is 6 to 8 weeks in duration. The weekly one hour class incorporates a new motorized model build each week and the instructional content incorporates STEM concepts centered around the model build. Each session is a new STEM based theme and the model builds each week incorporate the overall theme. We have over 30+ themes that range from Laws of Motion, Space Adventures, Gadgets & Gizmos, Cranium Contraptions and many more. After school enrichment programs are geared to elementary school aged children 6 and up.
Classes follow the Bricks 4 Kidz® motto – We Learn, We Build, and We Play with LEGO® Bricks:
We Learn – Teachers lead a discussion on STEM concepts related to the model build.
We Build – Working with partners, students will build motorized machines, rides, vehicles and more out of LEGO® bricks, gears, axles, beams and motors using proprietary model plans designed by Bricks 4 Kidz and specialized kits. Students are challenged at age appropriate skill level as we offer model builds at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.
We Play – Once the model build is complete, students explore their own creativity and imagination through enhancements to the model builds and collaborating with each other. Students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.
