Kidizens Fall Program

JK8A1116

Kidizens is our flagship program aimed at students between the ages of 8-11. The program provides a creative social and learning environment where students build and inhabit their own LEGO city. We encourage collaborative and guided discovery of real world concepts while role-playing and having fun in a universe built of LEGOs. Our mission is to inspire kids to become great citizens and future leaders, one LEGO brick at a time.

Our Kidizens Fall program is a highly interactive, fun and immersive project-based learning session in which students meet once a week to build, manage and govern their own LEGO city. The curriculum incorporates many urban planning, sustainability, environmental, and science,  engineering concepts utilizing motors, axles, gears, and robotic kits.
