After School Enrichment Programs
Bricks 4 Kidz ® after-school classes build on the universal popularity of LEGO® bricks to deliver a high quality of educational play. Kids construct a new model each week based on exciting themes from space to sports, amusement parks to animals.Our one hour classes explore architecture, engineering and technology concepts using LEGO® bricks. Students participate in 4 to 8 week sessions (depending on the school) focused on exciting themes including Space, Inventions, Famous Buildings, Laws of Motion, Amusement Parks and Natural Disasters.
We learn…Our trained, screened Bricks 4 Kidz teachers lead a discussion related to that day’s model, using materials designed by educators to teach concepts across a variety of subject areas. Kids will learn about everything from gears, torque and friction, to geography, space exploration, weather and MORE! Students are given a handout after each class summarizing what they learned and built in class that day.
We Build…Working with a partner, kids experience the hands-on fun of model building, from concept to completion. All of our models are designed by Bricks 4 Kidz model designers, so you won’t find them on the shelves of your local toy store. Students build the model of the day with simple step by step instructions.
We play…Free-play time rounds out the hour, giving kids an opportunity to develop their creativity. Students explore their own creativity through free play time
