Bricks 4 Kidz (Kindergarten – 5th grade)
Cost $75
Classes will meet on Mondays from 3:00 – 4:00 PM in the Art Room
This is a six week class meeting from March 20 – May 1 (3/20, 3/27, 4/10, 4/17, 4/24, 5/1)

Your child’s learning doesn’t need to stop when the bell rings.  At Brick 4 Kidz, we believe it’s important to tap into a child’s potential by encouraging their curiosity and creativity in and out of the classroom.  Our fun-filled model plans designed by engineers and architects, teach children to learn with LEGO bricks.  Our theme based projects kids motivate children by reinforcing S.T.E.M. based principles while enhancing self-esteem, improving fine motor-skills, and teaching important classroom lessons such as organization and following directions.  All classes include a S.T.E.M. lesson, model building with instructions, and creative/free play.  All participants build and keep a mini figure after each session.  Join us Mondays, March 20 – May 1 from 3:00-4:00 in the Art Room.

This is a 6-week after school program being offered to 4th-8th grade students with little or no experience using tools or building projects. This highly structured and closely supervised class introduces young minds to the engineering process and hand tool use.

All the activities are designed to be fun and educational and students get to keep all the projects they make.

Notes: Safety glasses or goggles and gloves provided. Loose clothing, jewelry, and open toed shoes should not be worn. Long hair must be pulled back. When working with power tools there is always the risk of cuts, scrapes and scratches. Constant adult supervision will be provided.
