School holiday fun with LEGO
If you are like me you love hearing about new and interesting school holiday activities for your kids. And it's a bonus if it is educational as well. So when I heard about Bricks 4 Kidz school holiday workshops I instantly thought what a great idea.
Bricks 4 Kidz uses the popularity & fun of building with LEGO bricks to introduce children to STEM concepts (that's science, technology, engineering & maths to us oldies).
Learn, build & play with LEGO at a Bricks 4 Kidz workshop
At the workshops children will work in small groups to build projects using specially created Bricks 4 Kidz models. Children will work and play with LEGO Technic pieces such as gears, axles, electric motors and more. Workshops also include unique games and challenges, plus there is also plenty of time for free play.
Learning STEM concepts in a fun environment
In the upcoming April school holidays Bricks 4 Kidz are running various full and half day workshops including :
Space Adventures - build models related to the NASA space program & LEGO Star Wars themed models
Mining and Crafting - create Minecraft style shelters, mobs, critters and tools using traditional LEGO Bricks and LEGO Mosaic builds. There are no screens (hallelujah), everything is built with their hands. If your kids love Minecraft and LEGO then book early as this one is popular.
Amusement Park Mayhem - Build amusement park rides with motorised models and learn how to make things spin, roll, turn and rock
Bricks 4 Girlz - a girls only day of crafting & creating with LEGO bricks
Angry Birdies - In this fun workshop kids will build birds, launch them through the air, build racing carts, and more
Super Heroes - Explore all the caped crusaders and discover their super powers! Create a fantasy world and protect it against all of the evil arch enemies with custom contraptions made with LEGO Bricks.
Remote Control Mania - create vehicles, inventions or machines & learn how to make them move with LEGO wireless remote controls.
