Hands-on Junior Engineer Class

Hands-on Junior Engineer Class to Explore Real-world STEAM Concepts

(Replacing LEGO® Motorised Model Building Class)

In these fun and educational classes, students will experience hands-on engineering fundamentals as they build motorised models using LEGO® Bricks.

Bricks 4 Kidz provides a curriculum which introduce children to design thinking, information processing and problem solving skills alongside the exploration of science, physics and engineering principles.

The STEAM Education Curriculum at Bricks 4 Kidz® teaches important critical thinking skills that will create future problem solvers!

We provide experience-based STEAM education programmes in 60+ schools across the Aotearoa New Zealand.

In these fun and educational STEAM classes, students will experience the hands-on fun of model-building, from concept to completion. While exploring principles of engineering, students will develop creativity, problem solving, critical thinking skills and a growth mindset for the future.

Our LEGO® Junior Engineer Class curriculum caters for different age groups, from 5 to 13 years old. Every class is a fun, enriching experience for your child, building new projects each week based on a variety of themes, using the LEGO® bricks loved by generations of children.

WE LEARN

Our trained Bricks 4 Kidz® teachers lead a discussion related to that day’s model. Instructional content is multi-disciplinary and designed by educators to increase the student’s general knowledge and introduces engineering concepts related to the model.

Lessons are designed around students’ interest, with themes such as interesting inventions, space, simply machines, transportation, animals and sports. Kids will learn about everything from gears, torque and friction, to science, physics, engineering and MORE!

WE BUILD

Kids experience the hands-on fun of model-building, from concept to completion. While exploring principles of engineering, students will develop problem solving and critical thinking skills.

All of our proprietary model plans are created by Bricks 4 Kidz® educators. Week by week we build up students’ fine motor skills, critical thinking skills, design thinking and information processing skills, maths and reading skills, social skills and confidence in problem solving.

WE PLAY

Modification of their models giving kids an opportunity to develop and expand their creativity and imagination.

Benifits of the Bricks 4 Kidz® Junior Engineer Classes

  • Reinforce science, technology, engineering, art and maths (STEAM) concepts
  • Develop an appreciation for how things work
  • Build self-confidence and problem-solving skills
  • Foster teamwork and collaboration
  • Spark imagination
  • Provide a safe, enriching environment to create and play

Science

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

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

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

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.

Mathematics

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.
