At Kidizens, we build responsible future leaders; one brick, one project, one city at a time. Our mission is to inspire children to develop the 21st century skills they need to become good citizens and civically responsible future leaders of tomorrow. We believe that our city-building framework cultivates a deep understanding of how societies form, function and evolve.
Would you like to leverage your love of LEGOs to learn real-life skills and strategies?TM
For children, who love LEGOs and are looking for new opportunities to collaborate with peers in a fun and interactive social learning environment, we offer Kidizens.
Kidizens is an innovative educational environment which encourages collaborative and guided discovery of real-world concepts while role-playing and having fun in a universe built of LEGOs.
The guiding principle of the Kidizens program is to offer a highly immersive, experiential learning environment for kids that nurtures their creative confidence, communication, collaboration and leadership skills. We believe that when kids are engaged in a project that they find meaningful and exciting, their desire for knowledge is limitless. Research has shown that students recall 20% of what they hear but as much as 90% of what they have the opportunity to “experience” or do.
Our programs combine experiential learning with detailed civics, history and real-life lessons to create a fun LEGO environment that encourages students to let their imaginations take them to new heights. In designing, building, and governing an interactive LEGO society, our kidizens are truly engaged as stakeholders and motivated to learn about everything from the intricacies of a city council meeting to the importance of managing a budget. Along the way, they learn important skills, such as problem-solving, decision making, conflict resolution, public speaking and leadership.
We offer a variety of age-appropriate programs- Young Kidizens, Kidizens, Young Leaders, Young Entrepreneurs, Young Mayors, and Visionaries. We also offer in-school and customized LEGO workshops, LEGO birthday parties, and drop-in sessions to supplement our standard LEGO Summer, Spring and Fall Camps and a multitude of age-appropriate Programs offerings.
