Kids LOVE to learn at Bricks 4 Kidz and parents LOVE that their kids are learning and exploring after school!  


At Bricks 4 Kidz our after school enrichment classes let participants explore, learn, construct and design models using LEGO bricks, technical elements and motors. Students participate in our classes for around one hour each week focusing on exciting themes including Space, Inventions, Famous Buildings, Various Weather Conditions and more. Instructional content includes concepts of friction, gravity, torque, scale, gears, axles and beams and more.  


Working with a partner, students will obtain hands on experience of seeing a model come together from concept to completion. Problem solving skills, teamwork, and self-esteem are emphasized and enhanced.Our programs provide a safe, relaxed learning environment where initiative is invited and self-expression is celebrated. Model building provides opportunities for problem-solving and helps kids develop an appreciation for how things work. All this takes place while kids are having fun and socializing in a non-competitive atmosphere.
