Bricks 4 Kidz of Hunterdon-Somerset in conjunction with The Bounce Factory in Warren and Team Makers of North Jersey to create a unique and exciting Field Trip for students in grades 1st – 6th. It integrates S.T.E.M. learning with fun, hands-on activities that will focus on Science, Engineering and Math concepts. The field trip is designed for groups from 50 to 125 students. Upon arriving at The Bounce Factory facility in Warren, NJ, the students are divided into groups that will rotate through 4 or more activities. The groups will:
- build motorized models with LEGO® bricks and discuss engineering and physics principals.
- enter the Bounce room for activities that will set in motion discussions of how physics impacts their play.
- learn about Math and Science then do fun team building activities that build their skills and promote working together.

The 2.5 to 3.5 hour field trip includes time for lunch and ends with discussion and quizzes on what they have learned.
