BRICKS 4 KIDZ® school incursions are an exciting and new tool to encourage learning in students. A BRICKS 4 KIDZ® program provides opportunities for children to:
- Build problem-solving skills whilst providing an opportunity for creative expression and fostering an appreciation of how things work
- Develop critical thinking skills through design thinking processes
- Explore STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) concepts by utilising multiple learning modalities to engage visual, kinaesthetic and auditory learning styles. Different kids learn in different ways!
- Develop social and emotional skills such as patience, teamwork and communication in the process of completing a project in a noncompetitive setting
- Improve fine-motor skills as children manipulate small components and objects
A BRICKS 4 KIDZ® School Incursion takes learning out of the pages of the textbook and into an imaginative, 3-dimensional, hands-on learning experience! Use the LEGO® bricks your students already know and love to get them excited about learning. School incursions are a fun-filled, engaging experience that kids will be talking about long after the fun and learning has ended.
