Explore S.T.E.M. concepts: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are incorporated into everything we do. The long-term benefits of S.T.E.M. education are numerous and include problem-solving skills and connecting different curriculum areas. Students become able to cross disciplines, using all their skills for all their problems, rather than compartmentalizing their learning. This creates well-rounded students who become well-rounded adults!
Improve motor skills: The manipulation of small items, like Lego® bricks, does wonders for the fine motor skills of young children. The ability to correctly hold a pencil or tie your shoes are results of well developed fine, or small, motor skills. As they grow, kids use these, along with gross, or large, motor skills in all of their activities from playing outside to maneuvering doorknobs.
Increase curiosity and appreciation: Children are so curious about the world! Bricks 4 Kidz programs help to foster that curiosity and encourage kids to ask questions and seek solutions. ‘How things work’ becomes a major topic of conversation in their activities, and not just while they’re completing tasks with us. That inquisitive spirit will extend into their other interests, hopefully creating young people with a love of learning and a thirst for knowledge and answers!
