WALK-IN AND PLAY (In the Creativity Center) Children ages 2 to 12 walk in and play at our Creativity Center with tons of LEGO® bricks. They can build cars and race them on our racing ramp, or just let their imagination go wild with building and playing. Parents can leave their children with us if they want to, or stay and play with them.
Our programs provide a safe, relaxed learning environment where initiative is invited and self-expression is celebrated. Specially designed project kits and theme-based models provide kids with the opportunity to solve problems and develop an appreciation for how things work, while having fun and socializing in a non-competitive atmosphere.
Goals:Introduce engineering and architecture principles Explore all four of the S.T.E.M. concepts; science, technology, engineering and math Increase general knowledge through discussions related to each model Develop social/emotional skills such as patience, teamwork and communication Enhance self-esteem by solving problems and completing projects Improve fine and gross-motor skills as children manipulate small components Utilize multiple learning modalities to engage visual, kinesthetic, interpersonal and auditory learning styles Teach important classroom skills such as organization and following directions Foster an appreciation for how things work
WHAT IS S.T.E.M
Each model 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 build.
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 bridges, towers and roller coasters.
Children are given the opportunity to invariably utilize math skills as they estimate, count, measure and build with LEGO® Bricks.
