For the past month we have had the pleasure of partnering weekly with Bricks 4 Kidz at our St. Mary's site.
"At Bricks 4 Kidz, we learn, we build, and we play with LEGO® Bricks! We use LEGO® products to provide a fun, hands-on learning and building experience focused on STEM concepts. The goal of Bricks 4 Kidz is to provide a learning experience for children that encourages critical thinking, creativity, organizational skills, problem-solving, and teamwork."
Every Wednesday our kids get the chance to participate in hands-on Bricks 4 Kidz classes. These classes include designing and building machines, catapults, pyramids, derby cars, buildings and other constructions out of LEGO® bricks. These classes help kids develop problem solving and critical thinking skills through building a new project in each class. Once the projects are completed, the kids get free time to elaborate on their creations and collaborate with each other.
We had a blast exploring our creativity and developing our problem solving skills with Bricks 4 Kidz. We look forward to partnering with them again in the future for more critical thinking fun!
