    1. Bricks 4 Kids! Grades 1, 2 & 3 (Maximum of 20 students)

              Thursdays - March 9,16,23,30  April 20,27

              Location: Room 10

              Cost: $75

    Bricks 4 Kidz is a hands-on class where students build machines, buildings, vehicles and other structures out of LEGO® bricks, using exclusive and one-of-a-kind model plans designed by our company. While exploring principles of engineering, architecture, physics and more, students will develop problem solving and critical thinking skills while playing with everyone's favorite toy, LEGO's!!!

    Participants build a new project each week. Each class begins with a teacher-led discussion related to the day’s model. Once the project is completed, children use the rest of their time to expand their gadgets and collaborate with one another. Students will work in a lab-type setting using LEGO® components such as gears, axles and beams. Instructional content is multidisciplinary and designed by educators to increase student’s general knowledge and introduce S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts related to the day’s model.

    SPORTS SPECTACULAR Explore sports ranging from gymnastics to biking, mini-golf to airplane acrobatics! This unit is a great way to get “sporty” kids building and get LEGO® fans interested in sports. Some lessons focus on the importance of physical fitness and different aspects of fitness, such as stamina and strength. Other lessons describe the mechanics of the sport, such as the physics involved in golf and the components of a stationary bike. But the best part for the students is the way the models move and the fun they have playing with them after they’re built - hitting a plastic golf ball with the mini-golf model, watching the gymnast spin around the bar and seeing the tiny airplanes spin around and around on the air show model. Maybe they’ll be inspired to try a new sport, or build a model of their favorite sport!
