Study proves Bricks 4 Kidz students improve Science and Math understanding
After School and Incursion Programs both improved Math and Science skills!
Participation in Bricks 4 Kidz In-School Workshops and 6-week After-School Programs was associated with increased scores on test items that measured student understanding of key Bricks 4 Kidz curriculum points.
For the entire study, the average child improved 24.4 percent, the equivalent of two and a half letter grades on an in-school test.
9 percent of students scored at least one more item correctly on the post-test over the pretest. In other words, 6 out of 10 children improved their math and science skills over the course of their Bricks 4 Kidz instruction.
After School; Improvement for students ranged from a 6.7 percent increase for Grades 3-5 to a 10.7 percent increase for Grades K-2.
In-School; Age 6 students improved 11.3 percent, Age 8 improved 37.0 percent, and Age 10 improved 44.0 percent.
The results from AEM’s study show that participation in Bricks 4 Kidz programs was associated with improvement in math and science skills. Students demonstrated greater understanding of age-appropriate curriculum at the end of their Bricks 4 Kidz unit. Parents considering Bricks 4 Kidz should know that their children are likely to demonstrate greater math and science mastery at the completion of the program.
