Students at Reamstown Elementary apply their smarts to constructing LEGO creations in the Bricks4Kidz Afterschool Program.

This is a hands-on class where students construct machines, buildings, vehicles, and other structures out of LEGO bricks, using one-of-a-kind model plans designed by Bricks4Kidz.

Each class begins with a B4K teacher-led discussion related to the model of the day.

Students build a new project each week, with multiple skill-level plans appropriate for each grade level.

While exploring principles of engineering, architecture, physics, and more, students will develop problem-solving and critical-thinking skills.

Once the project was completed, the children used the rest of their time to modify their model builds, collaborate with one another, and let their imaginations run wild with free play.
