There are all sorts of DFW kids activities out there but once in awhile we come across something that really excites us! Today, we want to tell you about Bricks 4 Kidz, an Engineering & Robotics program where DFW kids learn, build and play!
Bricks 4 Kidz® is devoted to providing an extraordinary atmosphere for children where they play with LEGO® Bricks. Classes are designed to teach the fundamentals of S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education, built around their proprietary model plans, created by engineers and architects.
At Bricks 4 Kidz offers activities for children ages 3yr – 13yr, including:
• After-School Enrichment Classes
• Summer Camps
• Birthday Parties
• In-school Workshops
• Pre-School Classes
• Kidz Night Out
Their programs provide a safe, relaxed learning environment where initiative is invited and self-expression is celebrated. Specially designed project kits and theme-based models provide kids with the opportunity to solve problems and develop an appreciation for how things work, while having fun and socializing in a non-competitive atmosphere.
The goals of the program include the following:
• Introduce engineering and architecture principles
• Explore all four of the S.T.E.M. concepts; science, technology, engineering and math
• Increase general knowledge through discussions related to each model
• Develop social/emotional skills such as patience, teamwork and communication
• Enhance self-esteem by solving problems and completing projects
• Improve fine and gross-motor skills as children manipulate small components
• Utilize multiple learning modalities to engage visual, kinesthetic, interpersonal and auditory learning styles
• Teach important classroom skills such as organization and following directions
• Foster an appreciation for how things work
