Our Core STEAM Holiday Programme Offerings
Motorised Model Building
Students will experience the hands-on fun of model-building, from concept to completion. While exploring principles of engineering, architecture, physics and more.
- Reinforce science, technology, engineering and maths concepts
- Develop an appreciation for how things work
- Build self-confidence and problem-solving skills
We offer an excellent introduction into the world of computer programming and robotics that will ignite your child’s imagination and introduce them to the possibilities of today’s technology world.
- Logical project based programming and coding
- Design thinking process
- Problem solving and Critical thinking
A creative building provides children with the opportunity to design, develop, construct and implement their innovative ideas. We motivate children to follow their creative direction and inspire them to build their imagination.
- Foster teamwork and collaboration
- Spark imagination
- Provide a safe, enriching environment to create and play
Each lesson 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 hands-on projects.
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 realize it, kids use engineering skills to construct models, such as simple machines, vehicles, architecture buildings, etc.
Arts provides children with the opportunity to design, develop, construct and implement their innovative ideas. At Bricks 4 Kidz we allow children to follow their creative direction and inspire them to unleash their imagination.
Children are given the opportunity to invariably utilise math skills as they count, measure and build with LEGO® Bricks. Students build numeracy and problem solving skills through abstract mathematical concepts.
