STEM, BRICKS 4 KIDZ® and LEGO® Bricks
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, organisational skills, problem-solving, and teamwork.
What is STEM and how can it further a child’s learning?
Each model provides children with a new scientific vocabulary. Lessons that focus on topics such as laws of motion, employ the concept of physical science, requiring children to apply what they’ve learned to their build.
Technology implements the use of science to invent and problem solve. Children use their creativity and analytical skills to discover viable solutions to problems presented at the start of each lesson.
Engineering uses the practical application of science to design and create. Although they may not realise it, children use engineering skills to construct models, such as bridges, towers and roller coasters.
Children are given the opportunity to invariably utilise maths skills as they estimate, count, measure and build with LEGO® Bricks. Problem solving skills will be heightened whilst constructing new and exciting designs.
