School Incursions Inspiring STEM based learning through the use of LEGO®.
BRICKS 4 KIDZ® has exciting School Incursion opportunities for you and your students!
A BRICKS 4 KIDZ® incursion uses the LEGO® Bricks students LOVE to deliver hands-on lessons related to cross-disciplinary curriculum objectives.
The BRICKS 4 KIDZ® approach to learning is imaginative, multi-sensory and fun, creating a dynamic learning experience for your students.
BRICKS 4 KIDZ® models are the centrepiece of the lesson, which includes an educator-scripted discussion designed to engage students in a discovery process.
BRICKS 4 KIDZ® instructors deliver everything needed for a 60-minute lesson, including LEGO® Bricks, model plans, and take-home materials.

What are Teachers Saying?
Brilliant program and insightful into children’s developmental ability to work as a team member. Powerful learning tool and observational tool on many levels of thinking and social engagement and collaboration. Extremely worthwhile learning at beginning of year a good activity to observe team work abilities and to look at Procedural texts in a different format. Great way to discover energy and forces. Very powerful Learning.”
“Bricks 4 Kidz is so much more than just Lego. Not only did the children learn about different scientific and technological ideas, but they got the opportunity to apply what they learnt to a particular Lego model. In addition to this, each lesson planned for time where the children could go beyond the theory and ‘tinker’ to extend their own knowledge and understanding. Overall a very well structured and authentic learning experience that appeals to a variety of learners.”
“We booked Bricks 4 Kidz at the end of the year to complement our problem solving unit in maths and our focus on cooperation for our grade 1/2 unit. Each class had a two hour session and the time flew. The children were very engaged and we were impressed with how well they followed instructions. They also had the opportunity to use their imagination to extend on activities such as adding to their merry go round. I have spoken to other classes at school and we are intending to book incursions for next year.
