Bricks 4 Kidz delivers hands-on programs for State School students from Prep to Year 6 through the use of LEGO® construction bricks. Our programs are ideally placed to support Queensland State School teachers to implement the Australian Curriculum into the Classroom (C2C) syllabus.
Through the use of Bricks 4 Kidz proprietary model plans designed by our in-house Engineers and Architects, classroom incursions take STEM concepts from the textbook into an imaginative, 3-dimensional, hands-on learning experience. Bricks 4 Kidz can liaise with State School teachers to determine which of our educational unit themes will most appropriately demonstrate core concepts within the existing curriculum for Prep to Year 6. Each of our model builds comprise at least two levels of difficulty specifically designed to cater to the different abilities of school students.
With programs that link directly with the Australian Curriculum, specifically the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects, Bricks 4 Kidz can deliver a whole of school experience using LEGO® construction bricks to convey new and challenging concepts in the classroom environment. We also run Robotics programs for students that link with the Digital Technologies National Curriculum 2016.
Each model provides kids 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, kids 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.
