This is a hands-on class where students build machines, vehicles and other structures out of LEGO® bricks, using one-of-a-kind model plans designed by Bricks 4 Kidz. • While exploring principles of engineering, architecture, physics and more, students will develop problem solving and critical thinking skills. • 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.
