Bricks 4 Kidz® STEAM Education Curriculum teaches important critical thinking skills that will create future problem solvers!
Bricks 4 Kidz® In-School STEAM Workshops use LEGO® Bricks that kids love, to deliver hands-on lessons correlated to the school’s cross-disciplinary curriculum objectives and overarching themes.
The Bricks 4 Kidz STEAM Education Curriculum allow learners to explore real world Science, Technology and Engineering concepts through hands-on model building projects, experimenting, questioning, exploring, and discovering new ideas linked to the Achievement Objectives of the New Zealand Curriculum. Throughout the process, learners develop cross-curricular skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics as they inquire, problem solve and collaborate.
Bricks 4 Kidz approach to learning is kinesthetic, multi-sensory and fun, creating a dynamic learning experience for your students.
It’s Bricks 4 Kidz’s vision to make high-quality STEAM education programmes Accessible to all Tamariki of New Zealand, to inspire them to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, through innovative play-based learning.
For over 14 years, Bricks 4 Kidz has been providing experience-based STEAM education programmes using LEGO® bricks, robotics and technology, to enhance children’s creativity, problem-solving, critical-thinking skills and a growth mindset for the future, and spark their interest in science, technology, engineering, art and maths (STEAM).
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.
