Bricks 4 Kidz® is all about educational fun: they learn, build and play with LEGO bricks, the ultimate informal learning tool. LEGO® bricks prompt kids to naturally practice methods of engineering through hands-on building and engage their imaginations and boundless creativity.
Starting at 3 years, Bricks 4 Kidz works with children to discover how things work, how structures are held together and what each component does. Gears, motors, robotics and LEGO computer software programs help children grasp technology while having fun. They share principles of science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) using their own unique in-house kits and proprietary models.
When building with LEGO bricks, it’s only natural that kids will develop enhanced spatial awareness, visual processing, and fine motor skills. Creative and imaginative play, independently and with a team, is also beneficial to child development. Group work allows children to learn about their peers and to develop social skills like patience, communication and cooperation, whilst working alone helps build self-confidence.
Bricks 4 Kidz offers an environment that encourages learning through playing. It is a program to employ children’s minds while having fun and making friends along the way.
Their activities fall in an educational to fun spectrum. In the educational end, they have afterschool and in-school workshops that follow a theme-based curriculum. Forces of nature, interesting inventions or transportation timeline are examples of topics in their elementary program. The kids employ LEGO® Technic® bricks and components to build motorized models. 'A trip to the zoo' or 'I like to eat' are among the themes for preschoolers who build using LEGO® DUPLO®. Every model that is built is given some context, so kids gather understanding about what they are building, its history and how it makes life easier.
Holiday workshops are centered on popular themes kids love, such as Minions or Star WarsTM. They build motorized models, 3D figures and mosaics, incorporating remote controls. There is never a dull moment, with plenty of time for free and creative play.
For the children interested in programming, Bricks 4 Kidz offers two levels of robotics. Kids build their models and watch them come to life using software. At the Bricks 4 Kidz studio children can also produce their own movie using stop motion animation or create their own comic.
Parties are the fun end. The kidz not only build and play with our interactive models but they also participate in games and challenges. Whether or not a child likes to build they still have fun at their parties.
Bricks 4 Kidz also offers workshops for adults and businesses. Its activities are carried out in English, Spanish or Catalan.
Join the fun! Never stop playing, never stop learning.
