Children in kindergarten–2nd grade will be using project kits composed of technical LEGO® Bricks to build different machines and models. The models are used to illustrate key STEM topics, like energy, biology, construction engineering, forces of nature, gravity, force and more.
Those in 3rd–5th
grades will build advanced robot models and incorporate the newest generation of motors, sensors and software. They will program their commands directly into the intelligent brick and test their capabilities.
Bricks 4 Kidz
classes provide an extraordinary atmosphere for children, where we learn, we build, we play… with LEGO®
Bricks. Programs are built around their proprietary model plans, designed by engineers and architects, with exciting themes such as space, construction and amusement parks. Their specially-designed project kits and theme-based models provide the building blocks for the Bricks4Kidz approach to educational play. At Bricks4Kidz, they believe that children learn best through activities that engage their curiosity and creativity.
Bricks4Kidz programs provide a safe, relaxed learning environment where initiative is invited and self-expression celebrated. Model building provides opportunities for problem-solving and helps children develop an appreciation for how things work. All this takes place while children are having fun and socializing in a non-competitive atmosphere.
